The Mayor's Arts Awards celebrate established and emerging artists who enrich our city's cultural life and connect our communities. These artists represent a wide array of disciplines — from literary and culinary, to visual and performing arts. Five unique awards also recognize contributions to our arts community that reflect the rich diversity of our city. The recipients of the 2017 Mayor's Arts Awards will be announced prior to the awards ceremony
The City of Vancouver Book Award recognizes authors of excellence who contribute to the appreciation and understanding of Vancouver's history, unique character, or the achievement of its residents. The $3,000 prize is funded by the City's Publishing Reserve, which was established in 1977 as a permanent legacy for Vancouver writers and publishers.
