The City of Richmond is looking for nominations for the 15th annual Richmond Arts Awards.
The public can nominate an extraordinary emerging or established artist, arts leader, cultural practitioner, educator, group, or arts business that has significantly contributed to the arts or is deserving of recognition. Nominations are being accepted in the following six categories:
• Arts education
• Artistic innovation and excellence
• Business and the arts
• Cultural leadership
• Youth arts
All artistic disciplines are eligible: culinary, literary, performing and visual arts, as well as craft, environmental arts, new media, and social practice.
The Richmond Arts Coalition will award a $300 cash prize to the winner of the Youth Arts category, which recognizes a performing, literary, media or visual artist 24 years of age or younger, whose artistic practice demonstrates outstanding promise and commitment to the Richmond arts community. Award winners will be honoured at a gala awards ceremony hosted by Mayor Malcolm Brodie at the Gateway Theatre.
Richmond residents are encouraged to submit nominations online at richmond.ca/artsawards. Nominations are being accepted until 5 p.m. on Monday, March 13.
The Richmond Arts Awards are presented through a partnership between the City of Richmond and Richmond Arts Coalition. The program has recognized 84 honourees since 2009.
