Do you know a company, a personality or a volunteer who has made a difference in Montreal’s artistic community? The annual Arts-Business Award honours members of the business community or corporations that have distinguished themselves through their support of the arts. Without them, many artistic projects would never get off the ground. So now is the time to show your appreciation and help us recognize the innovative spirit of all those who have had a positive impact on the arts. It will encourage others to follow their example!

Only cultural organizations may nominate candidates. If your headquarters is located in Greater Montreal, and you are a professional association, presentation site, arts festival, major cultural event, museum or organization involved in creation, production or presentation, feel free to nominate your business champion of the arts!

Enterprises must be from the private or parapublic sectors, not the cultural sector. Their involvement may take a variety of forms: prestige sponsorship, services, patronage activities, corporate collections, etc.
