Media & Technology MUSE Awards
The 27th annual MUSE Awards call for applications has closed. We wish our 2016 applicants good luck and encourage one and all to attend the free MUSE Awards ceremony at the AAM annual meeting in Washington, DC on Thursday, May 26th from 6-8 p.m. in the Marriott Marquis Hotel.
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.
