Patronage is UNESCO’s highest form of support, and is granted to demonstrate an organisation’s moral endorsement of an exceptional activity.

Patronage may be granted to a range of activities, such as producing cinematographic and audiovisual works, publishing books, organising congresses, meetings and conferences, awarding prizes, and other national and international events.
