Arts Council Seeking Nominations for Diamond Awards

The awards recognize and honor individuals and organizations for their outstanding artistic achievements and contributions to the arts in San Mateo County.

The San Carlos-based Peninsula Arts Council (PAC) is seeking nominations for it's 11th Annual Diamond Awards.

PAC is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to supporting, promoting and advancing the arts in San Mateo County. Each year the Diamond Awards are given in nine different categories: Arts Educator, Arts Organization, Individual Artist, Ray Lorenzato Young Artist (18 and younger), Arts Volunteer, Local Business Support, Donor Support, Government Support and Special Recognition. 

All nominations are to be submitted electronically via the official nomination form available at www.peninsulaartscouncil.org.  Deadline to submit a nomination is 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30, 2012.  Judging will take place in early December and recipients will be notified mid-December.

The Diamond Awards gala benefit and awards ceremony will take place on Jan. 25, 2013 from 6-10 p.m. at Hiller Aviation Museum. 

Organizers say support from sponsors and silent auction donations are needed to help underwrite the costs of the event. For sponsorship information, contact Peninsula Arts Council at info@peninsulaartscouncil.org.

Since 1992, PAC has focused on projects that have long-term county-wide benefits including public art, arts education and developing the county into a destination for the arts, parks and culture.  For more information visit www.peninsulaartscouncil.org or call Peninsula Arts Council at (650) 591-2101.
