2011 Watch Award

In October, 2011, WMF inaugurated its annual Watch Award to recognize an individual preservation activist who is advancing the work of the World Monuments Fund. WMF is proud to honor Marcela Pérez de Cuéllar with the first Watch Award. Marcela Pérez de Cuéllar, a longtime advocate for the preservation of Peru’s cultural patrimony, launched World Monuments Fund Peru in 2010. She now serves as its President. Mrs. Pérez de Cuéllar’s passionate commitment to fostering successful preservation projects that encourage improved stewardship and sustainable tourism is driven by her interest in promoting Peruvian culture.
