BAfM – The Robert Logan Award 2017

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.
