Arts Contribution of the Year

Our islands are a showcase for artistic talent and we boast a large and vibrant arts community, from musicians, actors and dancers, to painters, sculptors, producers and directors. We continually punch above our weight in terms of that offering, some of which has brought us local, national and international acclaim. This award aims to acknowledge the role that the arts play and to recognise individuals who through their talent, time and dedication have contributed to making this sector such an invaluable asset to our community.
