We are looking for Oakville authors, poets, playwrights, etc. to be recognized for their talents and honored through an arts awards celebration.
The deadline to apply is March 29, 2013. See the applications overview here, and the Literary Arts application here.
A Writer could win $500… and/or the chance to have their work showcased to a larger audience.
The Oakville Arts Council is pleased to be celebrating our 35th year in delivering services to artists, arts organizations and our greater community ensuring arts are valued, artists are respected and that Oakville’s arts sector is supported. We work to promote and foster artistic development, participation, and appreciation of arts and culture for the benefit of all Oakville residents, sustaining and inspiring the community’s education and engagement in and with the arts.
Currently, our plans are underway for our 5th Anniversary of the Cogeco Stars Among Us Oakville Arts Awards to be held on Thursday, October 10 at The Oakville Conference Centre. We are really proud of the Oakville artists who have been finalists and received awards over the last four years; such as, 2010 Literary Arts Awards recipient and playwright, Peter Gruner, whose play “Minced” was chosen as Best of Fringe for the 2011 Hamilton Fringe.
The planning has begun, the award applications are online, and we look forward to shining a spotlight on Oakville’s literary, visual, digital, and performing artists once again. (And there are applications for arts groups and for young artists, too.)
