Extended Date for Nominations for Awards for Cultural Excellence Announced
The Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport has extended the deadline for nominations for the annual Cultural awards to 30 November 2012.
Through these awards, the department seeks to recognise outstanding achievements and contributions in the Arts and Culture, Language, Heritage, Geographical Name, Museums, Libraries and Archives fields in the Western Cape.
These awards are open to individuals, organisations and groups whose efforts have made a difference to communities in the province. The awards also seek to honour those whose work contributes to strengthening the platform upon which the Western Cape can position itself as the creative centre of the nation.
There are many different categories for nominations and the department would like to urge members of the public to nominate individuals, organisations or groups that they feel deserve recognition for the work that they do. The winners will be announced at an awards evening hosted by the department in February 2013. Nomination forms, including more information on the different categories for nomination, can be found on the department’s website.
