The City of Victoria Medallion is a grand trophy in the form of a silver tray, emblazoned with the Medallion of the City of Victoria. This trophy was donated by the Corporation of the City of Victoria in 1938, and since then, it has been awarded to winners of the Open Piano Solo Classes in the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival. These recipients have been deemed by the adjudicators to have played at an outstanding level.
