With over 30 different museums and heritage organisations in Hertfordshire there is a lot to celebrate. These organisations contribute a lot to their local communities, achieving high standards in their work and some nationally innovative practice.
Following on from the success if the 2018 awards Hertfordshire Association of Museums would like to celebrate the amazing work of staff and volunteers, share the work that is being done and raise the profile of museums and heritage organisations.
This award is to recognise an exceptional contribution to your museum this year. It’s a lovely way to thank an individual or a team of people and acknowledge their efforts.
Have you made a significant change to your practice or developed a new project to engage with new audiences? Do you actively reach out to include new community groups? Then this award is for you!
OBJECT OF THE YEAR
Awarded through a public vote this award is for the museum which looks after the object which has captured the public imagination the most this year. This award is your museum’s chance to highlight the best of your collection, perhaps a ‘signature object’ or new acquisition and as a result promote your whole museum to a new audience.
PROJECT OF THE YEAR
This award is open to any museum project undertaken since August 2018. The judges will be looking for originality, evidence that the project has made a significant difference to the museum or the community it serves. It’s an award for a project that merits special recognition but might not fit into our other award categories.
This award celebrates a new initiative, project or way of working that has transformed the way your museum works and has made a big difference. The award will recognise the creative thinking that has resulted in your museum becoming more sustainable in the long term.
Have you made a significant change to your practice or developed a new project to reach out to new or existing audiences and improve mental wellbeing? Are you regularly running sessions for people aimed at improving their quality of life?
