Know an awesome artist, arts advocate or arts organization? Think they deserve an award?
Nominate them for the 2007 Governor’s Awards for the Arts and Humanities.
The Alaska State Council on the Arts is taking nominations now. Any person, organization or institution that has made a significant contribution to the arts in Alaska is eligible. The only bummer is, you can’t nominate yourself.
Arts Advocacy Award: Recognizes individuals or organizations whose leadership promotes and champions the arts in Alaska.
Business Leadership Award: Recognizes businesses (profit or nonprofit) or individual business leaders whose efforts enhance and sustain the arts in Alaska, through donation or participation.
Individual Artist Award: Honors individuals for their creative contributions to the state.
Margaret Nick Cooke Award for Alaska Native Arts and Languages: Recognizes individuals or organizations whose work furthers traditional Native language and culture.
Make a nomination by using the forms here.
The council will select winners in September, and awards will be presented at a ceremony Oct. 26 in Fairbanks.
