2017 Strathbutler Award Application Guideline

The Strathbutler Award is a biennial award of $25,000 which recognizes artists and craftspeople who have achieved excellence in their field while having made a substantial contribution over a significant period of time in the province of New Brunswick.

Consideration for the Strathbutler Award will be given to both nominations and applications. All submissions will be evaluated by an independent jury of arts professionals, recognised as such by their peers. Applications will be judged on artistic merit, contribution to visual arts and crafts in New Brunswick and contribution to the greater community.

Applications may be made in English or French. Eligibility Criteria Artists must have resided in New Brunswick for at least five (5) consecutive calendar years immediately prior to submission. Artists currently funded under the midcareer Marie Héléne Allain Fellowship are not eligible for the Strathbutler Award pending filing of Fellowship final report.

Artists must meet the definition of a professional artist, an artist who:

  • has specialized training in the field (not necessarily in academic institutions)
  • produced an independent body of work
  • made at least three (3) public presentations of work in a professional context in the past ten (10) years
