Why nominate or self-apply?

The recognition received by each nominee and award recipient serves to raise their profile, helps build their portfolio, and allows them opportunities to compete and thrive as an artist in our community and beyond.

All nominees receive recognition for their outstanding contribution to the arts in Wood Buffalo through ACWB’s marketing leading up to and during the awards event.

Each award recipient will be presented with a $250 cheque, a certificate, and an award (called a “Buffy”) handcrafted by a local artist.
