Nominees sought for Business in Arts Awards

The nomination deadline is February 2 for the 2007 Business in the Arts Awards.

The awards, sponsored by the New Hampshire Business Committee for the Arts, recognize businesses and business leaders for their impact on New Hampshire’s arts and cultural community.

A New Hampshire business of any size that supported the arts in 2006 is eligible for a Business in the Arts Award. Support may take the form of sponsorships, volunteer involvement of an executive or other staff member, the provision of in-kind goods or professional services, a tie-in that involved the arts in advertising, marketing, or public affairs campaigns, among other activities.

Four winners will be named: one from each business size category of microenterprise, small, medium and large.

A Leadership Award will be presented to an individual business executive to recognize exceptional leadership, vision and commitment in encouraging and developing the partnership between business and the arts.

The winners, who will be presented with work commissioned from a New Hampshire artist, will be announced at a May 14 banquet at The Center of New Hampshire-Radisson Hotel in Manchester.

To submit a nomination, visit or contact the NHBCA at 224-8300. – JEFF FEINGOLD
