Alameda County Arts Commission invites Community Members to submit nominations for the 2020 Arts Leadership Awards

Submission Deadline: Friday, May 29, 12:00 midnight

The Alameda County Arts Commission invites County residents to submit nominations for the 2020 Alameda County Arts Leadership Awards. Nominations are due on Friday, May 29 at 12:00 midnight and must be submitted online.

This annual program enables the Alameda County Arts Commission to recognize five individuals, one from each of the five districts of the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, for their outstanding achievements and contributions impacting the arts community and the residents of Alameda County. Award recipients will be presented to the Alameda County Board of Supervisors by the Arts Commission.

Nominees must be residents of Alameda County and involved in an arts discipline including, but not limited to, music, dance, visual arts, literature, theater, film and video, traditional crafts and folk arts, and new media. Nominees must be affiliated with an Alameda County arts organization through their role as an artist, staff person, board member, teacher, volunteer, donor, supporter, advocate, etc. For complete details, please review the online nomination instructions.

Nominations must be submitted by Alameda County residents. Each individual may submit only one nomination. Nomination statements must include a description of the nominee’s major achievements in the arts that have benefited the community and residents of Alameda County; the impact and results of the achievements; and other background information about the nominee’s contributions to the Alameda County arts community such as what distinguishes the nominee from his/her peers or colleagues.

It is anticipated that the Members of the Alameda County Arts Commission will review the nominations in June and the award recipients will be recognized in early October in conjunction with the County’s celebration of National Arts and Humanities Month.
