It’s time again to shine a spotlight on the stars of Richmond’s vibrant arts community. Innovative artists, cultural leaders and supporters, including volunteers and sponsors, are among those to be recognized for their contributions to Richmond’s arts scene. Anyone can submit an online nomination for the 13th annual Richmond Arts Awards at www.richmond.ca/artsawards. Nominations are being accepted until 5 p.m. on Monday, March 15.
Nominations are being sought in the following categories:
- Arts Education
- Artistic Innovation
- Business and the Arts
- Cultural Leadership
- Youth Arts
All artistic disciplines are eligible: visual, performing, literary and culinary arts, as well as craft, environmental arts and new media.
The annual awards ceremony has been cancelled due to safety precautions with respect to the COVID-19 pandemic. Following last year’s model, the recipient of each category will be recognized through the City’s various online platforms and social media campaigns beginning in May 2021.
Once again, the Richmond Arts Coalition will award a $200 cash prize to the winner of the Youth Arts category, which recognizes a performing, literary or visual artist 24 years of age or younger, who has demonstrated outstanding promise and commitment to the Richmond arts community.
The Richmond Arts Awards program is presented by the City of Richmond in partnership with the Richmond Arts Coalition.
The Richmond Arts Awards is supported by the Richmond News.
