About the Orchid Societies Council of Victoria

The Orchid Societies Council of Victoria (OSCOV) was formed in April 1992 in response to the need for Victoria (Australia) to have a truly representative body to coordinate the activities of various Victorian orchid societies and to act as a forum at state level. The Council currently has 30 member societies. These societies are equal members and not merely affiliates of some other body.

The OSCOV Judging Panel has its own judging rules and its own set of OSCOV awards. It also confers a number of Victorian Orchid of the Year Awards annually. The panel is recognised world wide.

OSCOV is actively involved in the preparation of papers and publications on various aspects of Orchid culture for its member societies. It also supplies slide and video programs that may be used at monthly meetings. It has a panel of speakers with the expert knowledge of all aspects of orchid culture, and these people regularly visit member societies to provide the item of the evening.
