     2014 UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation

Bangkok, 12 November 2013 – Entries are now being accepted for the 2014 UNESCO  Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation. The Awards recognize the successful efforts of private sector and public-private initiatives in conserving or restoring structures, places and properties of heritage value in the region. The Awards emphasize the importance of the conservation process, including the technical achievements and quality of the restoration, as well as the social impact, including community involvement in the project.

The deadline for receipt of materials has officially extended to 30 April 2014.

Since the Awards were established in 2000, UNESCO has received 556 entries from 24 countries. A total of 160 projects have received Awards for high achievement in conservation, while 8 have received the Jury Commendation for Innovation. 

In 2013 the award cycle received entries from the widest geographic spread to date, with a total of 47 projects submitted from 16 countries across Asia and the Pacific. With support from the Sino-Ocean Charity Foundation the programme will continue this year to expand and explore new and exciting issues related to exemplary heritage conservation practice.
