2012 Call for Nominations

Since 1990, the Independent has annually honored outstanding local artists and arts groups with Indies Arts Awards.

We need your help as we select winners for the 2012 Indies. This is your chance to let us know which artists, arts educators and arts organizations are doing unusual and amazing things in the Triangle. We especially want to honor those who have received less acclaim than they deserve.

Please send us nominations of individuals or groups that have distinguished themselves in music, theater, dance, literature, visual arts, filmmaking, arts programming and arts education. The winners will be saluted in a special issue of the Independent on July 18.

View a list of past Indies Arts Awards winners and see the Indies Arts Awards story archives.

Each nomination should include:


  • Your name, address, daytime phone number and signature.

  • The name of the individual or group you are nominating.

  • A statement in support of your nomination. Tell us why you think this artist or group deserves this award and why this is a particularly good year for recognition. Please disclose any affiliations you have with your nominee.

Send your nominations to:
