European Museum of the Year Award
The European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) is presented each year by the European Museum Forum (EMF) under the auspices of the Council of Europe. It was founded in 1977 by journalist, author Kenneth Hudson. Museums in 47 European countries, all members of the Council of Europe, can take part in the competition if they are newly opened or have undergone modernization or expansion in the past two years.
EMYA is awarded to two kinds of museums:
- Established museums that have undergone modernization or expansion during the past two years.
- New museums opened to the public in the previous two years.
Two more awards are simultaneously presented by the European Museum Forum: the Kenneth Hudson Award, and the Silletto Prize. See European Museum Forum for more information. The Fonds de dotation de l’ICOM of the International Council of Museums supports the European Museum of the Year Award.
