Arts Community Leadership Awards:
- A nomination package is submitted for each Lifetime Achievement Award and Arts Innovation Award nominee.
- A jury for each award, comprised of artists and arts professionals, reviews the nomination packages and determines who will receive the award based on each nominee’s work, career, exemplary accomplishments in their field and/or significant contribution to the advancement of the arts in Hamilton.
Established Artist Award:
- A nomination package is submitted for each Established Artist nominee
- A jury of category-specific arts professionals reviews the Established Artist nomination packages and determines who will receive the award based on each nominee’s work, career, and reception by the arts community at large.
- Each Established Artist nominates an Emerging Artist worthy of recognition in their award category.
- If the Established Artist is awarded, their Emerging Artist is awarded too! By winning together, professional artistic relationships can grow and thrive in the community between artists at different points in their careers.
