When Will You Announce the 2014 Winners?

A shortlist of 16 entries is chosen by a panel of experts from the heritage sector and out of these, four winners are carefully picked by our panel of celebrity judges, chaired by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The shortlist will be announced here in August when you'll be able to vote for your favourite. The shortlist that receives the most votes will win the English Heritage followers and Telegraph subscribers Award.

If you have applied and are shortlisted, we'll make a film about your project and you and your group will be invited to London to attend the award ceremony at The Palace Theatre on 3 November 2014.

If you have any questions about the awards, please contact us at: angels@english-heritage.org.uk.
