Announcing the launch of art06 awards nominations
Deadline Friday 10 March
art06 is Arts Council England, North West’s third annual spotlight on the arts in the North West and will take place in Preston on Thursday 8 June 2006.
art06 is held in partnership with the Northwest Regional Development Agency, supported by the BBC and Preston City Council.
Every year the Arts Council presents two prestigious awards, each worth £10,000, for outstanding achievement in the arts in the North West. This year the awards will be in the areas of:
· Arts and Communities
· Children and Young People
The two brand new categories have been chosen to reflect the excellent work which is ongoing across the region, often at grass roots level, and to reflect Arts Council England’s own core campaigns.
The winners will be chosen by a judging panel, whose high profile members will be announced at a later date.
Previous award winners include Contact Theatre from art04 and Quarantine and Eddie Berg from art05. All were judged to have made outstanding contributions in their respective fields.
The deadline for receipt of nominations is Friday 10 March. For more information on how to nominate and who might qualify for the art06 awards, follow this link.
