The 22nd edition of the Arts Excellence award from Culture Mauricie will be held in March 2021. The call for applications process has been launched: artists and cultural organizations have until December 6, 2020 to submit their application online.
For this edition, Culture Mauricie will offer six prizes, along with a $ 1,000 grant, in categories with nominations. Culture Mauricie’s board of directors will also pay tribute to an artistic or cultural personality for all of his or her work and contribution to the community.
The award categories are: Performing Arts Creation of the Year; Visual arts creation of the year; Book of the year; Cultural vitality initiative of the year; Cultural initiative of the year; and Special Prize for “Resilience” Initiative of the Year.
Also, a prize will be awarded by the Réseau BIBLIO du Center-du-Québec, de Lanaudière et de la Mauricie (CQLM) to reward a library that has distinguished itself by its dynamism and by the completion of a project bearing witness to the impact. of the library in their community. This award is in line with the Distinction Award of the BIBLIO CQLM Network, so it is not the subject of a call for candidates.
Remember that the deadline to submit an application is December 6. The form, including the eligibility criteria and the registration form, are available on the Culture Mauricie website.
It should be noted that since the first edition of the Arts Excellence awards, 212 recipients have been honored by Culture Mauricie.
