Sudbury Celebration of the Arts


The Sudbury Arts Council would like to thank the community for its patience and understanding as there was no community arts award presentation in 2019. We chose to take the 2019 year as a chance to make improvements and adjustments to the event, in order to best move forward. The event's purpose has been and always will be to honour the professional artists who have made a career in Sudbury and have bettered our community through their work.
We are proud to present the re-focused and re-vamped Sudbury Celebration of Arts once again on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
Nominations are officially open for the 2020 awards beginning November 1, and will close at midnight on January 31. The online form is available below. Hard copy forms are also available at the Monique Legault Studio, 172 Elgin Street, and must be mailed with all support documents to the Sudbury Arts Council, 1546 Bellevue Ave., Sudbury, ON P3B 3G2.
