As we approach the end of the year, attention turns to 2023 and the next glittering Museums + Heritage Awards.

Set to launch on 1st November 2022, full details of the ceremony will soon be unveiled.

But ahead of the official launch, Advisor can reveal that two new categories will be added to the awards in 2023, allowing more opportunity to recognise the hard work being carried out across the sector.

The first of the two new awards will recognise a team that, for the past year, has quietly helped operations to continue running smoothly. The objective of the award is to recognise a part of your organisation often overlooked during award ceremonies.

From HR, grounds maintenance, and collections care staff; teams in all departments will be considered by the judges for its collective positive impact, making a difference to the day-to-day running of your organisation.

Judges will be looking for a team that can demonstrate good practice, a collaborative approach, and invaluable combined results.

The second of the new awards will recognise sector support companies and individuals. This new category has been designed to shine a spotlight on freelancers, consultants, associations, partners and suppliers.

It will recognise the creativity and solution-driven focus which is crucial to the success of museums, galleries and heritage and cultural visitor attractions.

The judges will reward a person, business or association whose work has supported and enhanced the sector as a whole, or which can demonstrate the tangible difference made to its clients.

Museums + Heritage Awards are seeking nominations for this category and will also invite submissions, with client supporting testimonials, from individuals, companies and associations.

These are just two of the categories soon to be officially announced, alongside all the details for those intending to nominate and attend the awards.
