Creative City Impact Awards Nominations

Submission Deadline: June 10, 2024

This nomination form will remain open throughout the year. Nominations submitted after award program deadlines will be considered for the following year’s adjudication timeline.

2024 Creative City Impact Awards

Celebrating the outstanding achievements of Canadian municipalities in Cultural Planning, Public Art, and Cultural Events. The Creative City Awards of Impact are presented at the annual Creative City Summit. In 2024, the Creative City Summit will be held in Vancouver, BC from October 1–3, 2024. Recipients will be awarded on October 2 at 12:45 PM local time in Vancouver.

General Eligibility for all Awards:

Open to CCNC Class A voting (municipal) members in good standing at the time of the beginning of the awards process. The Cultural Leadership Award is open to all classes of members of CCNC. Contact us if you wish to check the eligibility of a potential nominee!

All nominated work should have been implemented/launched in the 30 months preceding the annual Creative City Summit. The interpretation of “implemented/launched” is somewhat flexible. If you are unsure if your nomination meets this criteria, please make a note in your nomination or email awards@creativecity.ca to confirm.

2024 Awards Timeframe: May 2022–May 2024. Projects launching between May 2024–October 2024 can be nominated but will be considered for the 2025 Creative City Impact Awards.
* Municipalities may self-nominate for all awards. The Cultural Leadership Award does not accept self nominations.

These Awards are not open to Class B non-voting (organizational and individual) members with the exception of the Cultural Leadership Award. This includes: Provincial, territorial and federal governments in Canada; Governing authorities in other countries; Not-for-profits; Businesses; Educational institutions; and Individuals.

Selection Process:

The CCNC Awards Program promotes a principled and effective adjudication process. A volunteer peer jury conducts a review of all submissions and selects the successful candidates. The jury may decide to not bestow an award in any given year. The current standing CCNC Board of Directors, and by extension their municipalities, are not eligible to serve on the Awards Program Jury. The recipients are celebrated at the CCNC’s annual summit.
