Heritage in Motion

Heritage in Motion is a multimedia competition for the creators and users of films, games, apps and websites on themes related to Europe's heritage, cultural and natural, tangible and intangible. Heritage in Motion grants awards and celebrates the best multimedia achievements and products - through varied, creative and innovative means - in order to draw attention to the value of Europe’s cultural and natural heritage in all its facets.

Cultural heritage is everywhere around us, but often remains unnoticed. Nowadays we are used to the fact that buildings are restored, landscapes are protected and certain folk art traditions are preserved in our society. However, cultural heritage changes with new generations: everything that is beautiful is also very vulnerable and needs to be protected, in order to remain accessible in the future.

Europa Nostra and the European Museum Academy have taken the initiative jointly to launch Heritage in Motion. These two founding partner organisations felt the need to gather the best multimedia products and achievements at a European event, focussing specifically on themes related to the safeguarding and promotion of Europe's heritage. Heritage in Motion is empowered by Europeana. read more

Other winners are:

  • Breaking the Frame, an interactive film drama by the Framework Knitters Museum: United Kingdom (Category: websites and online content) Jury: “The identification with a 19th century boy helps the users (mostly school children) to deal with contemporary moral issues.
