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.
