The programme has been initiated and supported by Event Communications Ltd. (Event), a British museum and experience design company. The programme is operated by EMF.
6 travel grants of €500 each will be awarded to individuals for travel to the Annual Award Ceremony Venue.
The grants will be awarded by a Selection Committee that includes representatives of Event, EMF Board of Trustees and EMYA Judging Panel.
Event initiated the grant programme in 2014 as a way of supporting the wider European museum community and the EMYA initiative. Event has been delighted by its success and, in particular, the fact that the grants have facilitated the participation of staff from nominated museums who might otherwise not be able to attend the EMYA ceremony.
Applications are invited from representatives of museums nominated for EMYA 2018 and from EMF National Correspondents.
