2016 Capital Awards

The Capital Awards Gala on Thursday, May 26 was full of mirages, musings, dreamscapes… and winners! During the gala, the annual general meeting was also held. Click here for updates and approved bylaws.

To all of our entrants who bravely submitted their work, ideas and musings for a chance to be recognized with their very own Capital Award - we thank you. This year we broke our previous record with 127 entries!

One of the most exciting changes to the Capital Awards this year was the revamped process and system that aligns with Silver Leaf and Gold Quill Awards. The evaluation you will receive from your Capital Awards submission can be used to set up your work for success in the Silver Leaf and Gold Quill programs. This means, that your entries have a greater chance of winning at the local, national and international levels! Stay tuned for the Silver Leaf call for entries.

If you did take home hardware, please contact T&J Award Services to order duplications so your whole team can bask in the glory.

Check out our Facebook page soon to see all the pictures from the evening!
