Call for Nominations- Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Distinguished Artist Award
The Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Distinguished Artist Award is among the largest in Canada. Up to three recipients will receive a $30,000 award each, a hand-‐cast medal, and if appropriate, a two-‐week residency at The Banff Centre Leighton’s Artist Colony. The awards are unique in the province in that they recognize Alberta artists who have achieved the highest standard in any arts discipline. Arts builders and collectives are also eligible, and nominees may come from anywhere in the province, or may now be practicing their art elsewhere, while maintaining a strong connection to Alberta. A national adjudication panel, overseen by The Banff Centre, will determine award recipients, who will be honoured at a gala celebration in Lethbridge on June 6, 2015.
Online nominations must be received by midnight, February 28, 2015.
