Art Fund, Museum of the Year Award

The Art Fund is not just for art collections, and isn’t just for big museums in large cities! – The Art Fund wants to hear more about the innovative and creative activities happening in museums across the regions.

The biggest museum prize in the world, Art Fund Museum of the Year seeks out and celebrates innovation and exceptional achievement in museums and galleries across the UK. They award £100,000 to one outstanding winner, and £10,000 to each other finalist to support future activities. This is an opportunity to spotlight originality and creativity in the sector.

Celebrate your bold and imaginative exhibitions, your learning programmes that have developed skills and delivered enjoyment to children and young people, your engagement and diversity programmes, your creative use of digital technology and your refurbishments, reinventions and new buildings delivering an impact to museums and audiences.

Applications will open on the 12 December, and the Award is open to organisations of all sizes. An application pack will be available on the Art Fund website in the coming weeks: https://www.artfund.org/
