The CIMAM Award for Outstanding Museum Practice recognizes exceptional practices in modern and contemporary art museums across the globe. Established in 2021, this award acknowledges innovative, accesible and sustainable methods in various fields, including conservation, education, exhibitions, publications, research, public access, communication, governance, sustainability, and fundraising.

Its purpose is to inspire and assist professionals in the international modern and contemporary art museum community by showcasing exemplary practices.

Is your museum exploring innovative ways to enhance the visitor experience and comprehension of artworks through the presentation of collections and exhibitions in the museum?

What are some of the models we might look to for ensuring participation and inclusion for all?

What are the challenges in adapting to future developments in arts and cultural sectors in diverse contexts?

How can new museum practices fulfill the evolving demands of society and the needs of local communities, ensuring the continued relevance of museums in the future?

What measures and initiatives can be taken to guarantee the long-term sustainability and continuity of museum practices, particularly in the face of rapid environmental, economic and societal change?
