This Award is open to candidates under 30 years old working in The Heritage Sector and offers a prize of £500 in memory of Robert Logan, BAfM Chairman 1994-1998.
Robert Logan was a former Chairman of The British Association of Friends of Museums (BAfM) who while in office, was killed in a climbing accident. He was particularly interested in promoting and encouraging young people in The Heritage Sector and it was with these ideals in mind that this award was set up. This Award is open to candidates under 30 working in The Heritage Sector.
Winner of the 2015 BAFM Robert Logan Award was Jasmine Farram of Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery.
