Celebrate those who have made exceptional contributions to the arts in Vancouver by submitting a nomination for the 2016 Mayor's Arts Awards by Monday, April 25, 2016!
The City of Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Awards recognize established and emerging artists in a wide array of disciplines that make up our creative sector – from literary to culinary and visual to performing arts, as well as unique awards for contributions to our community by volunteers, board members, donors, and sponsors.
Honourees in the artistic categories are chosen by a jury of peers, usually consisting of the three previous years’ recipients, for having made a significant contribution to their respective disciplines, achieving or contributing to artistic excellence, and for showing leadership and support for Vancouver’s cultural community over the course of their careers.
Each arts category Honouree selects an Emerging Artist in their discipline who represents the promise of the next generation.
Honourees for Business Support, Philanthropy, and Volunteerism are chosen by juries consisting of business and cultural community members active in those fields.
Awards for Arts Board Member of the Year and Lifetime Achievement are determined by a jury convened by the board of the Society to Bridge Arts and Community.
The selection in each category is made from nominations proposed by individual jurors and solicited from the community at large.
Artist and Emerging Artist Honourees and Lifetime Achievement recipients receive a cash award. Special non-cash awards are given for support of the arts through Volunteerism, Philanthropy, Business Support, and Arts Board Member of the Year.
The 2016 Mayor’s Arts Awards will be presented along with the Vancouver Book Award the evening of Monday, October 3 at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre.
