The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation is now accepting submissions for its annual awards program. Each year, the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation presents a series of awards honoring the outstanding, creative work of individuals in preserving and propagating the history, traditions and culture of the Marine Corps. Marines and civilians alike may submit their own entries or the distinguished work of others for consideration. Awards will be presented at the Foundation’s annual ceremony on April 21, 2012. Submissions deadline is December 31, 2011.
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 submissions categories include historical scholarship, journalism and letters and arts for a total of 14 awards.

“Our annual awards ceremony is a wonderful way to spotlight the creative achievements of civilians and Marines alike,” said LtGen Robert R. Blackman, Jr., president and CEO of the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation. “The Foundation deeply appreciates all those who work to advance and preserve Marine Corp history, traditions, and culture and encourages individuals to submit their own work or submit work on behalf of others.”
