The primary focus of our student award program is to support students in deepening their critical assessment of contemporary craft. 

Along with a free one-year membership in CCBC, the award includes:

  • the opportunity to participate in a group exhibition in a professional gallery which counts towards Canada Council grant applications
  • to take part in a jury workshop delivered by an experienced senior craft artist, giving the student an inside perspective of how selection committees assess  exhibition proposals
  • and an opportunity to use these skills to jury the bi-annual Online Student Exhibition.

Students are nominated by their institution for these awards. While CCBC routinely promotes the award to all institutions/organizations that provide material-based courses, we usually receive nominations from the jewellery programs at Vancouver Community College & Lasalle College and the ceramic’s program at Langara College. If your institution/organization would like to nominate students for this award please contact us awards(@)craftcouncilbc.ca.
