On Friday, a special awards ceremony in Guangzhou was held for individuals and organizations assisting in cultural heritage protection in China.

The winners of the event - which is now celebrating its ninth year this year - were released by the China Foundation for Cultural Heritage Conservation and were carefully selected based on expert judgment and public polls.

Some of the winners for the individual category included a museum teacher in Shaanxi, a cultural reporter from Beijing, a forest ranger fighting tomb raiders in Hubei, a retired worker working on short films in Hubei and a museum worker from the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

At least 10 people won awards this year.

At least 10 organizations won in the organizations category, including a media team for the Palace Museum, a Beijing-based volunteer group assisting in the protection of the Great Wall and a team from the China Central Television who is assisting in the introduction on traditional villages.
