Children in Museums Award open for applications. (Awards)

Posted: Tuesday, 27 September 2016

The Children in Museums Award is now open for applications. Deadline is the 1st of March 2017.

Each year Hands On! rewards the most excellent children's exhibition or project dedicated to children with the Children in Museums Award. The Award is presented during the Hands On! Conference.

The Children in Museums Award is a joint venture between Hands On! and the European Museum Academy. The Award was launched during the Children's Bookfair in Bologna, Italy in 2011. The EMA cooperates with HO! supplying judges and offering expertise as regards to content. The judges are on the look-out for creative and innovative exhibitions and programmes for the age group up to 14 years old.

The judges not only value creativity and innovation, but also consider the ways in which an exhibition or programme can change the course of museum thinking or museum practice, nationally as well as internationally. How can elements of the winning exhibition or programme be incorporated into the museum field? That is why the judges pay special attention to interpretation and presentation.
