Leadership Awards Program

The Alberta Museums Association Leadership Awards are grounded in the belief that excellence, innovation, and creativity form the foundation of outstanding museums. Award categories recognize the exceptional work and innovative thinking in the museum community that contribute to the social, cultural, and educational fabric of Alberta. Award recipients take the lead in creating value, accessibility, and relevance in their communities. 


NEW! The AMA is pleased to announce a partnership with the Best in Heritage Awards Projects of Influence, led by the European Heritage Association. The European Heritage Association's vision is to remain the world's unique event showcasing the best achievements in the heritage sector through an annual, global conference featuring award-winning museum, heritage, and conservation projects. From 2018 onwards, AMA Leadership Awards and Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility recipients will be featured on an international list of exceptional projects, from which finalists are chosen to present their success stories at the annual conference. We are excited that the innovative and inspiring work of Alberta's museums will now be recognized on an international scale to further champion the value of museums to their communities.
