Nominations Open for 2011 Business in the Arts Awards

Nominations are now open for the 2011 Business in the Arts Awards, sponsored annually by the New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts to publicly recognize and honor businesses and a business leader that have had significant impact on the state’s arts and cultural environment. 

artistAnyone may make a nomination! Arts organizations and artists are encouraged to nominate their favorite businesses. Businesses are encouraged to self nominate. Many businesses donate time and financial support to the arts community in relative anonymity. Nominating a deserving business and/or individual for a Business in the Arts Award is a simple act that demonstrates appreciation, generates good will, and helps bring attention to the exemplary partnerships formed between the arts and these businesses and individuals. The winners will be announced at the Awards banquet on May 16. 

To nominate a business or business leader:

•     Go to http://www.nhbca.com

•     Click on “Our Programs / Business in the Arts Awards”

•     Click on the option of your choice: “Nominate Online Right Now” or “Printer-friendly Nomination Form”


§     Read the Awards Criteria and print the Nomination forms from the attachment to this email and mail your nomination to the NHBCA, One Granite Place, Concord, NH 03301. 

Support of the arts may take the form of sponsorships or cash donations, volunteer involvement, in-kind goods and/or professional services, and/or advertising, marketing, or public affairs campaigns, as well as other activities.

The awards are divided into categories of size — small (fewer than 50 NH employees) medium (50-500 employees) and large (more than 500 employees) — so a small business is not judged against a large one. Support doesn’t have to be fancy or unusual. Winning nominations often contain descriptive action such as “consistent” and “thankful.”

Complete information, including previous winners, is contained in the Awards Criteria.

If you need more information or assistance with downloading or submitting nominations, please don’t hesitate to contact the NHBCA at arts@nhbca.com or 603 224-8300.
