Creative Partnerships Awards
Every day, around Australia, leaders from our philanthropic, business and cultural sectors are putting arts first.
The Creative Partnerships Awards recognises leaders and advocates who drive enduring partnerships between the cultural and private sectors and encourage the spirit of giving to the arts.
About our 2017 Awards
Nominees must champion giving to the arts, promote the value of supporting the arts to the broader community and demonstrate a commitment both to the arts and to a strong, sustainable future for Australia’s cultural sector.
Arts and cultural organisations, businesses, individual artists and those working in the philanthropic sector are encouraged to nominate individuals in all four categories.
The 2017 awards are:
- Arts Leadership Award
- Business Leadership Award
- Emerging Philanthropy Leadership Award
- Philanthropy Leadership Award
Australia is a better place when the arts, philanthropic and business sectors work together to support, champion and advocate the work of our many artists and arts organisations.
Let’s celebrate those who put arts first.
Anyone can be nominated, as long as their work meets the eligibility and falls within one of the four award categories. You can nominate across all four categories, but you can nominate only one individual per category.
