Grand Prix du Conseil des arts de Montréal

The Grand Prix du Conseil des arts de Montréal is marking 35 years of celebrating Montreal’s artistic vitality. This year, for the first time ever, the award ceremony will be presented in a 100% virtual format and accessible to one and all, at no charge.

Presented in conjunction with Caisse de la Culture and Télé-Québec, the annual event will take place on Thursday, November 12, 2020 from 12 noon to 1:15 p.m. Help us pay tribute to local creative talent and show your solidarity with our arts community, which has been so hard hit by the pandemic.

Since 1985, the Grand Prix du Conseil des arts de Montréal has recognized the excellence of a Montreal artistic organization and its remarkable achievements and highlights the artistic vitality of creators from Montreal. It brings together representatives from the municipal, business and arts communities.

The finalists are selected in December by the evaluation committees; the winner is chosen from among them by an outside jury composed of well-known Montrealers and the Chair of the Conseil. This is an important recognition for arts organizations.

Every year, Montreal philanthropists generously offer a $5,000 bursary. The winner receives a $30,000 bursary, as well as a work of art by a Montreal artist commissioned by the Conseil. Another great way to encourage creation!

The list of winners since 1985 provides an impressive look at the quality of our artistic organizations, which have contributed to defining the culture that permeates our city today: creative, innovative and resolutely turned towards excellence.
