The Heritage Toronto Awards celebrate outstanding contributions – by professionals and volunteers – in the promotion and conservation of Toronto’s history and heritage landmarks. Heritage Toronto asks you to consider some of the more significant achievements during 2010, and invites you to submit a nomination for the 37th Annual Heritage Toronto Awards. This year, nominations will be accepted in the following categories:
* William Greer Architectural Conservation and Craftsmanship – honours building owners for excellence in the restoration or adaptive reuse of a building 40 years old or older. Projects of all sizes will be considered, from the restoration of the façade or front porch on a house to a major renovation of a commercial building.
* Book – for a non-fiction book about Toronto’s archaeological, built, cultural and/or natural heritage and history, published in 2010.
* Media – for a production about Toronto’s archaeological, built, cultural or natural heritage and history. Projects such as films, videos, websites, and newspaper and magazine articles are eligible in this category.
* Community Heritage Award – a cash prize awarded to one volunteer-based organization in each of the four Community Council areas for a significant activity that promotes or protects heritage within the Community Council area.
We would like to hear from you! The success of this program depends 100% on the participation of the community and you are encouraged to submit a nomination for any initiative you feel is worthy of recognition. The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at 4:30 pm. If you have any questions about the nomination process or the eligibility of projects, please contact Nancy Luno at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 416.338.2175.
This year’s Awards will be announced and presented in conjunction with the William Kilbourn Memorial Lecture, at a gala evening on October 4, 2011.
