Held annually in February, the Victorian Cache of the Year awards was established in 2013 to celebrate the great cache in the previous year. Late in the year, nominations are open to everyone to nominate caches they feel are worth recognition. All the nominations are collected and the finalists are open to voting. Voting is usually open for 6 weeks, to allow people who want to make an informed vote enough time visit the nominated caches.
After the awards a bookmarked list, from geocaching.com, is published for easy reference to the nominees and winning caches.
