The MUSE Award competition, now in its 21st year, recognizes excellence in media produced by or for museums. Categories of media include audio and video tours, games, interactive kiosks, interpretive interactive installations, multimedia installations, podcasts, web sites, and video with a new category added just for students. This year MUSE recruited Jury Chairs, who coordinate panels of museum media professionals to judge the entries, from around the world, giving the Media and Technology Standing Professional Committee a truly international reach.
The 2010 MUSE Awards competition received over 200 applications from museums world-wide. Forty-two winners were named. Seventy-three judges—museum and media professionals from across the world—selected the winners.
