Architects, craftsmen, cultural heritage experts, professionals and volunteers, public and private institutions, and local communities: this is your chance to win the top heritage award in Europe!

In 2017, up to 30 heritage achievements from all over Europe will be awarded. Of those, 7 projects will receive a Grand Prix and €10,000 each; one will be granted the Public Choice Award, chosen through an online poll conducted by Europa Nostra. All the winners will be celebrated at the European Heritage Awards Ceremony which will take place in June 2017 in Turku, Finland.
