The Carter Wosk BC Creative Achievement Awards for Applied Art and Design celebrate British Columbians who through their creativity contribute to the cultural and economic fabric of the province. The deadline for nominations for the 2015 Awards has been extended to July 13, 2015.
The awards recognize individuals whose work has a practical function. Artists and designers who work in jewelry, glass, wood, fibre, clay and metal or in such areas, but not limited to, textiles, furniture, weaving, ceramics, fashion and industrial design are eligible.
Both established and emerging artist and designers are invited to apply. Up to three awards will be presented annually.
The awards are named in honour of two distinguished British Columbians: cultural philanthropist Dr. Yosef Wosk whose generosity makes these awards possible and ECUIAD professor emeritus Sam Carter.
Up to three recipients will be awarded $2,500 each at a presentation and exhibition event to be held in the Fall of 2015. The recipients will be granted the use of the British Columbia Creative Achievement Award seal to signify their creative excellence.
