‘Heritage in Motion’ is a biennial Multimedia Festival for the creators, the audiences and users of films, games, apps and websites on themes related to Europe’s heritage, cultural and natural, tangible and intangible. The Festival grants awards and celebrates the best multimedia achievements and products -through varied, creative and innovative means-  in order to draw attention to the value of Europe’s cultural and natural heritage in all its facets.

Europa Nostra and the European Museum Academy are the founding partnerfounders organisations, which felt the need to gather the best multimedia products and achievements at a European Festival, focussing specifically on themes related to the safeguarding and promotion of Europe’s heritage.

Heritage in Motion wants to stimulate the usage of innovative technologies concerning European heritage. Prizes are awarded to the best games, apps, websites and movies.

Projects can be submitted until the 1st of November 2013.

  6. To share best practices among the champions and supporters of Europe’s heritage in the field of marketing and the use of new media.
