NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN THE ARTS AWARDS
The call for nominations is now open for the 2017 Business in the Arts Awards. The Awards are sponsored by the New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts to publicly recognize and honor businesses and an individual business leader for their significant impact on New Hampshire’s arts and cultural community.
A New Hampshire business of any size that supported the arts in calendar year 2016 is eligible for a Business in the Arts Award. Support may take the form of sponsorships, volunteer involvement of an executive or other staff member, the provision of in-kind goods and/or professional services, a tie-in that involved the arts in advertising, marketing, or public affairs campaigns, as well as other activities.
Four winners will be named: one from each business size category of microenterprise, small, medium and large.
The Leadership Award will be given to one individual business leader to recognize exceptional leadership, vision and commitment in encouraging and developing the partnership between business and the arts.
A panel of judges comprised of representatives from business and the arts will review the nominations and select the winners. The winners, who will be presented with art commissioned from a New Hampshire artist, will be announced at a festive banquet on May 8, 2017 at The Center of NH – Radisson Hotel in Manchester at 5:30 p.m. at which all companies nominated will be acknowledged.
