Levels of Recognition
There are three levels of recognition for the Heritage Conservation, Heritage Education and Awareness, and Heritage Planning and Management awards categories.
• Outstanding Achievement: for excellence
Projects nominated for an award must have been completed within the past three calendar years.
Individuals, groups, organizations, businesses, government agencies and other entities will be considered for a Heritage BC award, based on evaluation and selection criteria for each of the categories. Please contact Heritage BC for more information on these criteria, and how to prepare the award nomination.
The Awards & Presentation Ceremony
Heritage BC award winners receive a special framed certificate. All awards are presented at the Awards Ceremony and Gala, which takes place during National and Provincial Heritage Week February 13-17, 2017.
Submitting a Nomination
Nominations can be submitted online on Heritage BC's website. Nominations are now open until end of day on Friday, November 4th, 2016. No more than two nominations may be made by the same nominator in a given year. Incomplete nominations will not be considered by the jury.
All decisions of the Awards Committee are final. Submissions may not be re-nominated in subsequent years in the same award category. Separate phases of large projects may be nominated, as long as they are clearly different from previously completed work.
Following review by the awards jury, nominators and successful nominees will be notified by email or telephone.
Please read our nomination procedures carefully before using the online form to submit a nomination.
