Carter Wosk Award in Applied Art + Design



The Carter Wosk Award in Applied Art + Design celebrates British Columbians who, through their creativity, contribute to the cultural economy of the province. Each year, up to three recipients are chosen and each are awarded $2500.

The awards honour excellence in art with a practical or functional application and are named in honour of philanthropist Dr. Yosef Wosk and Emily Carr University of Art and Design professor emeritus Sam Carter. This award is presented by the BC Achievement Foundation, and independent organization established in 2003.

Individuals who work in fields such as, but not limited to, jewellery, glass, wood, fibre, clay, metal, textiles, fashion, shoemaking, weaving, and industrial design are eligible.
