Calgary Arts Development is pleased to present the second annual Cultural Leaders Legacy Artist Awards as part of the Mayor’s Lunch for Arts Champions in February 2014. Nominations are now open. The awards are $5,000 cash prizes that support artists or arts organizations in the following categories, with additional categories to be announced:
Calgary Arts Development seeks jurors to review nomination packages and select award recipients.
Each jury will be comprised of four members who represent performing, presenting, literary and visual arts, as well as a representative from the award benefactor. Each award jury will be asked to review nomination packages by January 10, 2014 and be available for a jury meeting between January 13 and 24, 2014. Nomination packages are succinct to allow for review within a week.
The Doug & Lois Mitchell Outstanding Calgary Artist Award follows a two-phase review process in which a three-person nominating jury will review packages to create a shortlist, from which a separate award jury will make a final selection.
To apply to be a juror for any of this year’s awards, please contact email@example.com and indicate which panel you are most interested in. Please note that jury members are not eligible to be nominated for awards they are reviewing, but are eligible for other Cultural Leaders Legacy Artist Awards awards.
