Mirko Šubic Award
The conservator-restorers gained their own award in 2008; until then they had to compete with conservators for the Stele Award or with museum workers for the Valvasor Award. The award is named after (1900–1976), who is found to be the most deserving for the development of modern Slovene restoration, and a brother of the architect . He was a Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design and restored many frescos in castles and churches, including Hrastovlje, Crngrob, and Olimlje.
The award is given for the life-time achievements in the field of the restoration, to honour the most deserving conservator-restorers and also to draw attention to the current issues in the field. In addition, the Association of Slovene Restorers bestows Mirko Šubic Recognitions for important achievements in restoration in the previous year, while the Mirko Šubic Honorary Recognition is awarded to supporting members.
Some of the award winners are(2017), (2016), (2015), (2014), (2011), (2009), and (2008).
