Launceston's heritage will not only be recognised with the Open House event exploring behind-the-scenes buildings, but also with an awards program.
The Heritage Awards highlight the city's built environment through three categories - the Built Heritage Project Award: Works under $200,000, the Built Heritage Project Award: Works over $200,000, and the Highlighting Heritage Award.
The first two awards relate to works that retain the cultural significance of a heritage place, while the third award is for the creation of media, exhibitions, programs, conservation and promotion of heritage collection items, and concepts for heritage sites.
The Heritage Snap photographic competition is also held each year to provide a platform for Launceston's youth to share their views on the city's heritage.
City of Launceston Heritage Advisory Committee chair Hugh McKenzie said people spoke of Launceston as having one of the most intact heritage landscapes in the country.
"It is something we are very proud of," he said. "[The awards are] a celebration of the heritage that we have got."
