2021 Creative Partnerships Awards nominations now open
Let's celebrate Australia's leaders in private giving and arts partnerships!
Each year we are inspired by the commitment and dedication of leaders from the philanthropic, business and arts communities and the contribution they make to Australia’s cultural life. The Creative Partnerships Awards give us the opportunity to recognise these exemplary people.
The 2021 Creative Partnerships Awards are open to individuals from all Australian states and territories who show leadership in private giving and arts partnerships, recognising this across the fields of arts, philanthropy and business.
Nominations are now open across the four main Awards categories:
Arts Leadership Award | for an individual working in the arts and cultural sector who through their leadership, advocacy, practice and example has made an exceptional contribution to promoting private sector’s investment into Australia’s cultural life; demonstrating vision, commercial acumen and strategic thinking in their engagement with donors and business, and encouraging increased giving to the arts.
Business Leadership Award | for an individual working in the business sector who through their leadership, advocacy, practice and example has made an exceptional contribution to Australia’s cultural life by fostering increased investment and engagement between business and the arts.
Emerging Philanthropy Leadership Award | for an individual who is new to the philanthropic sector (within the last five years) and whose leadership and contribution to the arts is shaping the future of philanthropy and private giving in Australia’s cultural sector.
Philanthropy Leadership Award | for an individual, family, group, foundation or other entity that through their leadership, advocacy, practice and example has contributed significantly to the arts and encouraged philanthropic giving to the arts.
