Marine Corps Heritage Foundation accepting submissions for annual awards

The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation is now accepting submissions for its annual awards program.

Each year the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation presents awards honoring the outstanding, creative work of individuals in preserving and promulgating the Marine Corps’ history, traditions and culture.

Marines and civilians alike may submit their own entries or the distinguished work of others for award consideration. Awards will be presented at the Foundation’s annual ceremony April 20, 2013. Submissions deadline is Jan. 9, 2013.

From active duty and retired Marines to civilians, the awards program draws entries from a broad spectrum of individuals interested in portraying or recognizing some aspect of Marine life, culture, history or work.

The foundation recognizes superior achievement in literature, art, photography, videography and museum exhibits. Award categories include historical scholarship, journalism and letters and arts for a total of 15 awards. The awards submissions will be reviewed by a distinguished and diverse panel of editors from major regional and national media outlets, as well Marines, authors and noted photographers.

For a detailed list of the awards as well as the submission requirements, visit www.marineheritage.org/Awards.asp.

“Our annual awards ceremony spotlights the creative achievements of civilians and Marines alike,” said Lt. Gen. Robert R. Blackman, Jr., president and CEO of the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation. “The Foundation applauds all those who have created work that depicts, advances and preserves Marine Corps history, traditions, and culture. We strongly encourage individuals to submit their own work or submit work on behalf of others. It is important for these works to be celebrated.”
