Dear Friends of Preservation:
The Historic Preservation Division is accepting 2015 Heritage Preservation Awards nominations in anticipation of Heritage Preservation Month this May. Attached are updated forms, guidelines and a categories list. Also attached is the event nomination form for the Calendar of Events.
This year the theme for May is cultural landscapes that influenced New Mexico artists. This will be illustrated on our poster. Award and event nominations that tie into the theme are appreciated, but all nominations will be considered equally. Nominations must be returned by March 12 and will be announced following the Cultural Property Review Committee meetings April 10 meeting. The ceremony is May 8 at the Scottish Rite Center in Santa Fe.
Please return award nomination forms with five (5) jpeg photo files of adequate resolution to be projected on a large screen during the awards ceremony to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos may also be used for publicity and should be credited if preferred.
Event forms should be returned to New Mexico Heritage Preservation Alliance President Victoria Jacobson at email@example.com by March 12. NMHPA published the *Calendar of Events* last year and has graciously agreed to compile the 2015 *Calendar*. Please use the attached form and include a photo if you would like your event illustrated. Event photos also may be used for HPD publicity purposes.
All forms can be found on our website.
Thank you for your interest in Heritage Preservation Month.
