Since 2002, the NLFAS has bestowed this award on individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the folk arts in Newfoundland and Labrador. The recipient is presented with a cash prize and a physical award at the Annual Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival.
Nominations must include a biography detailing the proposed recipient’s contributions to the folk arts of the province, two or more letters of support, and contact information for the proposed recipient. Strengthen the nomination by explaining how the candidate fills the mission of the NLFAS. We prefer that the nominee be available to receive the award in person at the Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival so that the audience can join us in giving them the thanks they so richly deserve!
