The Arkansas Arts Council is accepting nominations until April 26 for the 2013 Governor’s Arts Awards, which recognize Arkansas artists, arts patrons and corporations for their contributions to the arts community.

Nominations are accepted in seven categories: Arts Community Development, Arts in Education, Corporate Sponsorship of the Arts, Individual Artist, Folklife, Patron, and Lifetime Achievement. Nominees must be current Arkansas residents or Arkansas-based corporations. Nominees will be judged on the significance of the contributions made, the range of the individuals and groups served and the length of time and degree of the activity or contributions.

Members of Arkansas's arts community make up the jury; their selections are announced in the fall. A panel from the Arkansas arts community reviews the nominations, and the award winners will be honored at an awards ceremony in the fall.

Nomination forms are available at the Arts Council website or from Cheri Leffew, 501-324-9767 or cheri@arkansasheritage.org.
