Request for Proposals: Award Design for the Business / Arts Awards
Business / Arts is inviting Canadian visual artists to submit proposals for the design of an award for the Business / Arts Awards to be used over the next five years (2023-2027). In the first stage of the selection process, we are inviting visual artists to submit their portfolio, CV, and a brief expression of interest. Selected artists will then be invited to participate in the second stage and submit a more detailed proposal. The successful artist will be asked to design and create a minimum of six awards in advance of the upcoming Business / Arts Awards Celebration taking place in fall 2023.
The successful artist will be awarded an artist’s contract. They will be paid a commission fee of $6,000 CAD and the cost of materials.
Presented annually, the Business / Arts Awards recognize innovative partnerships between business and the arts, and celebrate exceptional philanthropists, leaders, organizations and companies who have made a significant contribution to the arts in Canada. The event gathers hundreds of leaders from both the arts and business sectors for a black-tie affair featuring cocktails and conversation as well as live entertainment from prominent Canadian artists.
