The Carter Wosk Awards for Applied Art & Design celebrate British Columbians who, through their creativity, contribute to the cultural economy of the province. Each year, up to three recipients are chosen and each are awarded $2500.
The awards honour excellence in art with a practical or functional application and are named in honour of philanthropist Dr. Yosef Wosk and Emily Carr University of Art and Design professor emeritus Sam Carter. The BC Achievement Foundation, an independent foundation established and endowed by the Province of BC in 2003, presents the awards.
Individuals who work in fields such as, but not limited to, jewellery, glass, wood, fibre, clay, metal, textiles, fashion, shoemaking, weaving, and industrial design are eligible.
