Open for submissions: European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards 2021

The Awards recognise outstanding conservation projects, innovative research, the longstanding dedication to heritage of professionals and volunteers, and exceptional initiatives in awareness-raising, training and education.

In 2021, up to 30 remarkable heritage achievements from all over Europe will be awarded. Of those, up to 4 winners will receive a Grand Prix with a monetary award of 10,000 Euro. One winner will also receive the Public Choice Award following an online vote conducted by Europa Nostra, the European Voice of Civil Society committed to Cultural Heritage.

In addition, from among the submitted applications, two ILUCIDARE Special Prizes will also be awarded for excellence in heritage-led innovation and international relations. 

The European Heritage Awards / Europa Nostra Awards, which were launched in 2002 and have been run by Europa Nostra ever since, are supported by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. The ILUCIDARE Special Prizes are supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.

The Awards have brought major benefits to the winners, such as greater (inter)national exposure, increased visitor numbers and follow-on funding.
