Every two years, REMA puts under the spotlight the projects that reflect the vision and versatility of today’s Early Music sector.

In 2024, around 15 categories of prizes given to projects that have contributed significantly to the Early Music Field sector and its development will be attributed by a Jury of specialists from the sector and from the cultural sphere.
The REMA Awards goals are to
- Reinforce the sector’s activities, internally and in relation to the rest of the world
- Give more visibility to Early Music as research-oriented music and its stakeholders
- Reward relevance over a subjective appreciation of artistic quality
- Support projects that build a sustainable future for Early Music
- Support excellence in performance and research
- Reward innovative approaches on 1000 years of common heritage
