The National Trust (NSW) is pleased to announce the shortlist for the annual National Trust Heritage Awards, which acknowledges and celebrates the greatest innovation, conservation, education and advocacy with a view to preserving or protecting natural, built and cultural heritage in New South Wales over the past year.
Assessed by an independent panel of judges across 11 categories, award entries were received from the building design and architecture sector, community groups, the culture and arts sector including galleries and libraries, leading researchers and publishers, and many more.
The National Trust Heritage Awards is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and will announce the winners in each category at a luncheon event on 10 May 2019 at Doltone House in Pyrmont.
