After announcing the shortlist for the Children in Museums Award 2017 at the beginning of July, the European Museum Academy and Hands On! International have opened the call for applications for the 2018 awards until 1 March 2018.
The Children in Museums Award is in its 7th year and recognises excellence and innovation in exhibits designed for children within the museum sector.
Applications are welcome from children's museums; education children and youth departments in museums; and from specialist subject museums with a particular emphasis on children's programming.
Museums may be long-established or recently opened. However, priority is given to programmes which display recent innovation. The project entered for the Award must be current and open for viewing in the judging year. The entry fee is 250 Euro, 200 Euro for members of Hands On! International.
The pre-selected museums will be announced in July 2018, the award ceremony will take place in October 2018.
