Museums Galleries Scotland are calling for entries for the Museums Change Lives Awards 2020.

The Museums Change Lives Awards celebrate the achievements of museums and individuals that have made an impact on the lives of their audiences and communities, with winners to be announced at a ceremony during our online conference in November.

This year’s Museums Change Lives awards will have four categories – including a new award for the Best Lockdown Project, which will recognise the best museum responses to the coronavirus crisis.

Other awards include the Best Museums Change Lives Project award, which will recognise the best project in the past year that reflects one or more of the themes of the MA’s Museums Change Lives campaign: Promoting Health and Wellbeing; Creating Better Places; and Inspiring Engagement, Reflection and Debate.

There will also be an award for the Best Small Museum Project that delivers social impact, for museums with an annual turnover of less than £320,000.

There is also a Radical Changemaker award that will recognise the achievements of an individual in promoting one or more of the themes of Museums Change Lives in their museum. This award will be open to staff, freelancers and volunteers from across the sector.

You can find full details of the awards and how to apply on below. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the online nomination forms for each category. The deadline for entries is Friday 25 September at 17.30.
