We recognise the contribution of individuals, groups, or organisations/academic institutions who protect, preserve and promote the country’s heritage as the “Champions of Heritage”. The award recipients and the projects reflect best practice in promotion, preservation, conservation and/or interpretation of our heritage. Nominations were received from all disciplines that have a direct bearing on
how heritage is appreciated and preserved in the country. The awards ceremony to honour the heritage champions from across South Africa will be hosted in conjunction with the Northern Cape Department of Sport, Arts and Culture as well as the Sol Plaatjie Municipality.
