Gillian Lowndes Award
Louise Baril Memorial Music Award
Anne and Philip Klein Visual Arts Award
The decision to distribute an award is based on the amount of money the principle funding generates during the year. With interest rates very low, sometimes these funds do not generate enough interest to merit an award each year. Awards are not made if there is insufficient interest earned or if there is no qualified applicant.
The Arts Council is enthusiastic about their awards program and is actively seeking more financial help so that awards can be made larger or new awards may be created. If you would like to create a new memorial award or sponsor an award as a corporation, the Sunshine Coast Arts Council would like to hear from you. Please contact the council at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604.886.5412.
Awards give artists the impetus to strive harder and to give back to our community. They are a win-win for everyone!

THE ANNE AND PHILIP KLEIN VISUAL ARTS AWARD
The Arts Council solicits annually for the Anne and Philip Klein Visual Arts Award which is presented in early November and carries a prize of $300.
The Klein Award was created in 2000 to honour the memory of Anne and Philip Klein and to encourage artists who have come to their artistic passion late in life. After active careers,. Anne's as a special education teacher and Philip's as a motion picture animator and technical director. The Kleins became art students in retirement, she as a spinner and weaver and he as a sculptor. Their work garnered numerous awards, and after they settled in Roberts Creek, Anne Klein became a member of the Arts Council. The Award is financed by donations from the Klein family and friends and from others who approve of the kind of encouragement it offers.
