The 2012 IIC Advocate Award has been presented to Patrick Boylan,
Dinu Bumbaru, George Mackenzie and Marie-Therese Varlamoff at the
IIC 2012 Vienna Congress. The presentation of the Award recognised
their work in creating and sustaining the Blue Shield initiative.
IIC's Advocate Award, given in recognition of those who use their
influence, resources and talents to support the efforts of heritage


The International Committee of the Blue Shield (ICBS)


works for the protection of world cultural heritage by co-ordinating
preparations to meet and respond to emergency situations as well as
post-crisis support. It promotes good standards through risk
management training and awareness-raising campaigns for
professionals and the general public. Its unrivalled body of
expertise allows the organisation to collect and share information
on threats to cultural heritage worldwide, thus helping
international players to take the appropriate measures in case of
armed conflict or disaster.

ICBS intervenes as an advisor and co-operates with other bodies
including UNESCO, ICCROM and the International Committee of the Red
Cross (ICRC). In emergency situations, ICBS encourages the
safeguarding and the restoration of cultural property, the
protection of threatened goods, and helps the professionals from the
affected countries to recover from disasters.

An interview with the four recipients will be published in IIC's
News in Conservation and as part of the Dialogues for the New
Century series on the IIC web-site soon
