The BC Heritage Awards celebrates outstanding achievements and best practices that have impacted and strengthened all forms of heritage as a valued cultural resource in communities throughout British Columbia.
The BC Heritage Awards recognizes the achievements of individuals, organizations, groups, businesses, and local and regional governments in communities across BC.
The next intake for the BC Heritage Awards will open in October 2020.
Awards are presented in four categories:
There are three levels of recognition for the award categories.
Projects nominated for an award must have been completed within the past three calendar years (preceding the nominations deadlines).
Individuals, groups, organizations, businesses, local governments and other entities will be considered for a BC Heritage award, based on the information as submitted and the evaluation and selection criteria for each of the categories.
NEW: the BC Heritage Awards are becoming increasingly competitive. It is important for the nominator to provide a strong, succinct rationale for the nomination and to describe clearly the merits of the project.
Please contact Heritage BC for more information on these criteria, and how to prepare the award nomination.
