Icon Conservation Awards

From: Charlotte Cowin <ccowin<-at->
Date: Monday, July 12, 2010
Icon is delighted to announce the third round of Conservation
Awards. They celebrate excellence in conservation treatment,
training and research and development, and since 2004, the new field
of digital preservation. They highlight the achievements of a sector
which, although vital to the effective care of our heritage, rarely
receives public recognition. They contribute to the raising of
professional standards and promote sustainability and care for the
environment. By focusing on best practice and the dissemination of
new ideas, they provide a wider social benefit in supporting the
effective preservation of artefacts both new and old. Icon is
pleased to announce that it is running the 'Valuing Excellence'
Conservation Awards this year. The winners will be announced at a
ceremony in London on December 1, 2010 to be held at the Royal

As in previous years, the Conservation Awards 2010 are generously
supported by Sir Paul McCartney. The Awards are managed by Icon, the
Institute of Conservation, and are sponsored by The Pilgrim Trust.
The Digital Preservation Award is sponsored by The Digital
Preservation Coalition and The Research and Innovation Award by The
Anna Plowden Trust.
