Vote for the Watershed Landscape Project

Hope all’s well… I’ve got some exciting news for the forum and a request for votes
Thanks,
Louise

The HLF and LEADER funded Watershed Landscape Project is excited to announce that it has been awarded a Laureate in the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards 2013 (http://www.europanostra.org/laureates-2013/). The 30 winners, across four categories, were selected from nearly 200 nominated projects. The Watershed Landscape Project is the only UK winner in the ‘Education, Training and Awareness-raising’ category, placing the heritage of the South Pennines and the work of its volunteers firmly on the European stage.

“The Jury thought the South Pennines Watershed Landscape a most imaginative project for raising awareness of a rich natural and archaeological heritage. Impressive in scale and multidisciplinary in approach, it tells fascinating stories, ensuring sustainable protection of the cultural landscape and enhancing regional development. It has turned a once-disregarded area into a popular destination, attracting wide interest among the local population, from children to a range of ethnic groups. A high standard of academic research was matched by extensive publicity through diverse popular channels.”

Of the 30 winning projects, six will be named as Grand Prix Laureates at the award ceremony in Athens and one of the winners will receive the Public Choice Award, based on an online poll conducted by Europa Nostra. Please register your vote for the Watershed Landscape Project by following this link http://vote.europanostra.org/ (please note that you will be asked for three choices and can only vote for one UK Laureate).

Please spread the word!
