The Artist Recognition Awards are presented annually at the Creative Nova Scotia Awards Gala to artists in three categories: Emerging Artist, Established Artist and Indigenous Artist. Funded from the Nova Scotia Arts Endowment Fund, each award carries a cash value of $5,000.
The awards help showcase the recipients’ work to residents of the province and to people beyond our borders. This visibility will encourage artistic and economic well-being for the recipients and contribute to the health of Nova Scotia’s artistic sector in support of a well-rounded community.
The Emerging Artist Recognition Award recognizes artists of any age who are in the early-stages of their professional career, have completed specialized training, and have presented their work publicly.
The Established Artist Recognition Award recognizes artists who have emerged from their initial training and development to become recognized, established artists in Nova Scotia.
The Indigenous Artist Recognition Award recognizes artists of Indigenous backgrounds who have emerged from their initial training and development to become recognized, established artists in Nova Scotia.
