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

  • The Patron of the Arts Award 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 recognizes an individual's exemplary commitment to the theatre and an elevating impact on the industry.

These awards will be presented at the 37th annual Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards. If you know of a worthy nominee for either of these awards for 2019, please use this online nomination form.

The nomination deadline for both awards is 5:00 p.m., Tuesday, May 7, 2019. Nominations are reviewed for consideration by a jury consisting of members of the theatre community.
