Community Nominations Open for Two Jessie Awards

The following is excerpted from a communication issued by the GVPTA.

Nominations are being accepted for two annual awards for Vancouver-based individuals/organizations that have made considerable contributions to the local theatre industry:

  • the Patron of the Arts Award, which recognizes outstanding contribution to theatre, not as a practitioner but as an integral supporter that advances the ecology through their dedicated support and contribution of expertise or resources (nominee could be an individual, organization or business); and
  • the GVPTA Career Achievement Award, which recognizes an individual's exemplary commitment to the theatre and an elevating impact on the industry.

The awards will be presented at the 36th annual Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards.

If you know of a worthy nominee for either of these awards for 2018, please use this online nomination form.

The nomination deadline for both awards is May 15, 2018.
