Business and the Arts Recognition Award

Deadline for recommendations: March 10, 2017

Do you know of a business that has made an impact in the local arts community? Help us acknowledge their contribution by nominating them for the Business and the Arts Recognition Award. 

The Business and the Arts Recognition Award was initiated in 1994 to recognize and encourage support from Ottawa’s business community to the local arts sector. Nominators are asked to submit a letter outlining the business’s involvement in the local cultural community, and how they have helped to support local artists. 

The award recipient will receive a limited edition print from Geraldine Taylor’s Experimental Farm series as well as an annual membership to the Ottawa Arts Council.

The selected business will be presented with the award at the Ottawa Arts Council Awards evening on Tuesday, May 9, 2017.
