To showcase successful multimedia cultural heritage projects to the rest of Europe a platform was created through the initiative of Europa Nostra, the European Museum Academy and Europeana: The Heritage in Motion Awards recognise innovative multimedia projects which promote, explore or safeguard Europe's cultural heritage, and open up exciting new routes for audiences into heritage collections.
The Heritage in Motions Awards 2016 will be held in Lesbos, Greece on 19-21 May 2016 during the annual conference of the European Museum Academy.
Applications for the awards are open until 15 January 2016. Applicants can sign up at: http://www.heritageinmotion.eu/login
