The City of Richmond is calling for nominations for the fifth annual Richmond Arts Awards.
The awards recognize artistic leaders or active supporters of the arts in Richmond and will celebrate excellence in six categories: Business and the Arts, Volunteerism, Cultural Leadership, Artistic Innovation, Arts Education and Youth Arts.
In five years, the program has attracted 104 nominations, of artists in every discipline, among the six categories. They recognize both well-established institutions and rising stars in Richmond’s art scene.
Three finalists in each category will be named on Friday, April 19, with the winners announced by Mayor Malcolm Brodie in May.
To nominate an individual or business, submit a form by Monday, March 18 at 5 p.m. To get a form or for more information, visit www.richmond.ca/artists or call 604-204-8672.
Richmond Arts Awards 2013 was developed in partnership by the City of Richmond with the Richmond Arts Coalition, and sponsored by the Richmond News and Canadian Western Bank.
