Our ambition is to collectively celebrate and spotlight to the broader industry the accomplishments of those who make a substantial international contribution to our field.
Nominations for the Distinguished Artist Award, International Citation of Merit, Patrick Hayes Award, and Angel Award are solicited annually from the ISPA membership. For the Distinguished Artist Award, a nomination may also be received from the Congress Planning Committee.
All eligible nominations are reviewed by the Nominating Committee which recommends a slate of nominees for Board approval.
In considering your nomination, please note that:
Awardees must be present to accept their award. In extenuating circumstances where their presence is not possible, an appropriate individual may represent the winner and accept on their behalf.
We welcome nominations that reflect the diversity of the sector and the world in which we live. In particular, we encourage nominations of those who have historically been under-recognized including the outstanding women, people of color, deaf and disabled, Indigenous, non-binary and trans artists and leaders among us. Your nominations are essential to identifying nominees who reflect our international community.
