The Heritage Toronto Awards – Call for Nominations

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 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.
