The annual Museums + Heritage Awards, now in its sixteenth year, recognises projects of excellence – innovative and ground-breaking exhibitions from galleries and visitor attractions across the UK and Europe. These range from remarkable achievements of national institutions to projects crafted with limited resources and those championing their staff and volunteers who work hard to deliver inspiring visitor experiences.
The Awards are judged by a panel of the sector’s leading lights including, Diane Lees, Director General, Imperial War Museum; Bernard Donoghue, Director, Association of Leading Visitor Attractions (ALVA) and other leading sector professionals.
The 2018 Awards have 11 categories to choose from, including the BRAND NEW Best Shop Award which is split into two categories – Turnover Above £500k and Turnover Below £500k. The highly anticipated Temporary or Touring Exhibition, sponsored by Displayways, will once again be championing the incredible achievements in design and interpretation of teams across the UK. Also returning for 2018 is the ever popular and FREE TO ENTER Volunteer(s) of the Year Award, in partnership with AIM.
With these Awards open to all museums, galleries, cultural and heritage visitor attractions and their suppliers, no matter what size or budget, this is an unrivalled opportunity for everyone!
