2015 NSW Creative Achievement Awards - Nominations Closing Soon

Nominations for the second NSW Creative Achievement Awards will close on Sunday April 12.

The award were established in 2014 to recognise outstanding achievements that raise the global profile of NSW creative industries in two categories – NSW Creative Laureate and NSW Emerging Creative Talent.

The prestigious NSW Creative Laureate recognises an individual, team or organisation that has demonstrated significant leadership and made a significant contribution to increasing the global profile of NSW Creative Industries. The Award celebrates the very best of the State’s creative talent.

The NSW Emerging Creative Talent Award will be granted to an individual, team or organisation considered emerging in their sector that has demonstrated leadership in originality and innovation and contributed to raising the global profile of NSW Creative Industries. The award offers support for future development with a cash prize of $15,000.

The Awards form part of the government’s broader efforts, in partnership with industry, to drive outcomes from the NSW Creative Industries Action Plan to improve growth, innovation and productivity in the NSW creative industries sector.

In the inaugural awards, the multi-award winning digital animation company famous for bigscreen blockbusters including The Lego Movie and Happy Feet, Animal Logic, won the Creative Laureate  and ‘pocket filmmaker’ Jason van Genderen the Emerging Creative Talent award. Special commendations were given to Sydney Dance Company (Creative Laureate), and The Distillery and the Byron Bay International Film Festival (Emerging Creative Talent).

The winners will be announced on Monday, 25 May during Vivid 2015.
