Storytelling Award — $500

This new Storytelling Award replaces past years’ “Best Website Award” and “Best News and Media Award.”

How we share BC History is evolving rapidly. Community historians are sharing video, audio and visual content in novel and exciting ways, using websites, video, social media, podcasts, apps, and more. As technology and society evolves, BC’s public historians are rising to the challenge, responding creatively to reach new and broader audiences.

The Storytelling Award recognizes excellence in storytelling in non-traditional formats.

Open to organizations, groups and individuals who engage the hearts and minds of visitors while exploring British Columbia’s rich heritage, the award seeks to reward those who dream big, push boundaries to innovate and take risks, regardless of organizational size, budget or size.
