Once again, more applications for the Živa Award


In December 2018, following the closure of the call for Živa Award 2019 – the Award for the Best Slavic Museum and the Best Slavic Heritage Site, it was time for the FSC to examine the applications. These came in larger numbers than in the past, 26 this year, and for the first time the applications came from Ukrainian museums as well. In the six years since its inception Živa has received applications from 118 museums.

The jury composed of the experts from Slavic countries and the European Museum Academy started its task in February. They will visit all of the nominated museums in situ, which is a rare and unique practice that enriches both the museums and Živa judges.

The evaluation of museums ‒ candidates for Živa 2019 will continue until the end of April and the awards ceremony will take place at the beginning of October in Montenegro.
