Nominate an alum for an award

Recognize creative excellence with AUArts' Alumni Awards.

Our Alumni Awards recognize the accomplishments of Alberta University of the Arts (formerly Alberta College of Art and Design) alumni who have earned local, national and/or international prominence through outstanding professional achievements, artistic endeavours, or service to society. These exceptional individuals honour AUArts, the greater community, and provide an invaluable source of inspiration to new artists and designers. 

To be eligible for nomination, Alumni must be defined as the following:

  • Individuals who have received a for-credit certificate, degree or a diploma from AUArts (formerly ACA, ACAD). 

Adjudication of Alumni Awards

An ad hoc Selection Committee consisting of an AUArts Board of Governors member, staff, faculty, a student representative and a previous Alumni Award recipient will adjudicate nominations. Recipients will be recognized at an annual event.

Nominations will be accepted via our online portal as of March 1st, 2019 and will close April 23rd (11:59pm MST) 2019.  Please, no self-nominations.
