Queensland Gallery and Museum Achievement Awards: Nominations Closing Soon
Have you got your nomination in yet for the Gallery and Museum Achievement Awards (GAMAA)? Nominations close on Tuesday 31 July. Nominate your Queensland organisation or a worthy individual now - they could be a winner this year!
M&GSQ presents the GAMAA to honour the achievements of individuals and organisations in striving towards excellence.
Organisation awards are open to all public, non-commercial* Queensland museums, galleries and keeping places. Libraries, arts councils, artist-run spaces and cultural networks that undertake exhibition or museum practice-related activities are also eligible to nominate.
*Privately-owned museums and galleries that are not-for-profit are eligible to nominate. Other privately-owned museums and galleries may be eligible to nominate if they can demonstrate that they operate in a public, non-commercial manner. If in doubt, contact M&GSQ.
Individual awards are open to the paid and volunteer staff of any of the above organisations. Individuals must be nominated by another person, so if you know someone worthy, give them the recognition they deserve.
The winners will be announced at an Awards night to be held in late 2012. Travel costs will be provided for winners and commendation recipients to attend the awards presentation. There are cash prizes and prizes of goods/services for the winners in most categories, as well as a specially commissioned trophy by a Queensland artist.
Nominations close 5pm Tuesday 31 July 2012.
