Enter the Museums + Heritage Awards 2015

The Museums + Heritage Awards 2015 are now open for entry!  

Download your copy of the entry criteria and be sure to submit your projects in time for the closing date of Friday 30 January.  We strongly recommend that you pay close attention to our 'Getting it Right' top tips which are highlighted throughout the document. Ensuring that you follow the guidelines closely will give you the competitive edge. 

We're told that these are the awards that museums really want to win. They generate very public recognition for the winners and shortlistees and have been instrumental in helping many to secure funding and support from key stakeholders.  They have become the ultimate stamp of approval, giving a much needed boost and vote of confidence to everyone involved.

The categories for 2015 are as follows:

• Best Customer Service Award sponsored by BDRC Continental
• Marketing Campaign
• Permanent Exhibition sponsored by Martello Media
• Temporary or Touring Exhibition
• Educational Initiative
