The APAP Honors celebrates and recognizes trailblazers and visionaries of the performing arts field. For more than five decades, the coveted awards were presented annually as part of the APAP Awards Ceremony traditionally held at the annual APAP|NYC conference.
The APAP Honors ceremony became an online spring celebration during the pandemic, however, we are delighted to announce that after feedback from members and conference attendees, we will be returning to an in-person celebration of our awardees during the APAP|NYC+ 2024 conference, January 12-16, 2024.
APAP members are invited to nominate artists, agents, managers, presenters, producers, organizations, supporters, and other arts professionals whose hard work, dedication and vision have contributed to the strength, impact and resilience of the performing arts industry. As we work to sustain our field and look to the future, honoring the accomplishments of these field leaders is more important than ever.
To nominate an individual or organization for any of the six APAP Awards:
- You must be an active member of APAP, but the nominee is not required to be an APAP member. If self-nominating, you must be an active member of APAP.
- You may only nominate the same individual/organization for a maximum of two awards. Please submit each nomination separately.
- Self-nominations will be considered only if they are submitted with at least one (1) letter of support from an outside entity/individual (who is also an APAP member).
Deadline Extended---Submit Nominations by Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. (EDT).
