Nick Reeves Award for Arts and the Environment – now open for nominations
The award celebrates an artwork, project or field of activity by an artist (or group) that has contributed innovatively to CIWEM’s vision of “putting creativity at the heart of environmental policy and action”. This high-profile award recognises excellence in work by arts practitioners, or environmentalists engaging with arts practices, whether well-established or newly emerging, in the UK or elsewhere in the world. The focus is on rewarding identified work, not simply a person.
The 2019 competition is now open for entries! Entries will close on 26 July.
Nominees need to send a short description of the artwork or project you are nominating, along with your reasons in a message marked “Nick Reeves Award”, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Self-nomination is permitted.
All forms and modes of arts practice, and geographical locations, may be considered. This scheme symbolises the growing significance of cross-disciplinary approaches in relating imaginatively to the world around us, and in responding to the environmental and cultural challenges of the current age. CIWEM, CCANW, and their collaborating partners at the forefront of evolving new thinking on these issues, are committed to highlighting positive examples of effort, talent, leadership and insight for us all.
The judging panel consists of representatives from both CIWEM’s Arts and The Environment Network and CCANW. The judges will select shortlisted candidates, whose work will be recognised when the winning piece of artwork is announced to the press. The judges’ decision on all matters relating to the competition is final.
