Heritage in Motion, the prestigious award that recognizes innovative multimedia and audiovisual projects that promote, explore or safeguard Europe’s cultural heritage, returns after a one-year hiatus with new categories. The deadline for submitting projects has been extended to 10 July 2023.

The Heritage in Motion Award was founded in 2012 by the joint initiative of the European Museum Academy and Europa Nostra. Since the beginning of 2023, the project is managed jointly by EMA and the International foundation Forum of Slavic Cultures. This year, Mitra – the association for the development of audiovisual culture and intercultural dialogue also joined the team as an expert festival developer. Among other things, Mitra is also the organizer of the International Documentary Film Festival DOKUDOC, which plays a significant role in enriching and connecting the Slovenian cultural scene. 

Participants will compete for prizes in four categories:
– New Digital Experiences
– Virtual and Augmented Reality
– Heritage Audiovisuals
– Heritage Schools

The New Digital Experiences category will include projects focusing on immersive environments, multimedia installations and interactive spaces, and the Virtual and Augmented Reality category will include VR/AR as a tool for exploring museum repositories. The category Heritage Audiovisuals includes films, videos, documentaries, fiction films and animations on the topic of world/museum cultural heritage, while the category Heritage Schools is dedicated to films for young people, also on the topic of world/museum cultural heritage.

Heritage in Motion provides a platform for participants to showcase their creativity and innovation in promoting, researching, and protecting Europe’s cultural heritage through multimedia and audiovisual projects.
