Media & Technology MUSE Awards

Our 2018 MUSE Award winners have been notified! But they’ll have to wait until the MUSE Awards ceremony and champagne reception that kicks off the AAM Annual Meeting and MuseumExpo in St. Louis, Missouri at 6pm on Sunday May 7, 2017 to learn what prize they’ve earned. Join us for this exciting and free event taking place in the Marriott conference hotel. We hope to see you there!

MUSE awards recognize outstanding achievement in Galleries, Libraries, Archives or Museums (GLAM) media. The international Alliance Media & Technology Professional Network's annual awards are presented to institutions or independent producers who use digital media to enhance the GLAM experience and engage audiences. The MUSE awards celebrate scholarship, community, innovation, creativity, education and inclusiveness.

Projects must be produced by or for a GLAM, and may include websites, podcasts, multimedia installations, games, interactive kiosks, apps and much more. Review the MUSE Award Category Descriptions and the Criteria for Judging Entries for more details. Winning projects for each category are chosen by an international group of GLAM technology professionals and the awards presented at the Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo. Each category awards four levels of award: Gold, Silver, Bronze or Honorable Mention. A special jury prize, The Jim Blackaby Memorial Award, is optionally granted to an entry selected for its overall achievement as a media or technology-focused museum program. All winners receive a beautiful award plaque and are listed in perpetuity on the Media and Technology MUSE Awards list of past winners. Gold award winners are featured in a special edition of Museum magazine.
