Nominations are encouraged for projects from across BC who demonstrate innovation, imagination and advancement in the field. Nominations are encouraged from those who consider their projects to be “socially innovative”, whether it’s a large-scale technology initiative or a new advancement in a small town. Nominated projects can represent various sectors including leadership, education, exhibition design, archives, customer services, technology, communications or marketing.

Project participants can be paid staff or volunteers.

Criteria
  • Project participants must be currently working or volunteering in the cultural sector.
