     Nominations

 

As a leadership network, ISPA is committed not only to providing leadership development opportunities, but also recognizing excellence in the performing arts globally. There is an annual call for award nominations. All nominations are reviewed by the Nominating Committee Members and then a slate of nominees is recommended to the Board of Directors for approval. Hosts of the International Congresses may also elect to present awards to individuals or organizations of distinction from their region. The awards are presented at ISPA Congresses.


The nomination period for the 2018 ISPA Awards is now open.
