The European Heritage Awards/Europa Nostra Awards 2021 Open for Submissions
Europa Nostra is now calling for entries for the 2021 Awards. In this Transition Year, the UK is eligible for all the European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards including the second and final year of the Ilucidare prizes, which will showcase outstanding examples of heritage-led innovation and international relations around Europe. (NB: We have had this eligibility confirmed by Europa Nostra despite the Brexit disclaimer that still appears on the awards website).
Europa Nostra UK is keen that the UK continues to share its expertise and commitment as a leading player in European cultural heritage. With 62 fantastic examples since 2002, we rank second only to Spain in the number of winning entries. This year, Project Iron Bridge was one of 21 ‘exemplary achievements’, winning an award in Conservation Category, while The Crossroads of Empires Project (Birmingham University) had a Special Mention in the Research category and the Friends of Czech Heritage is currently shortlisted for one of the two Ilucidare special prizes.
The four categories are: Conservation, Research, Dedicated service by individuals or organisations and Education, training and awareness-raising. Two Ilucidare Special Prizes will again be awarded this year, selected from the submitted applications, to showcase outstanding examples of heritage-led innovation and international relations around Europe.
The deadline for submissions is 1 October 2020 (date of sending).
