Recognizing the Best in our Sector

Celebrating extraordinary contributions to presentation and touring in Ontario.

Has someone inspired you? Made your work easier? Gone the extra mile? Nominate them for the Award of Excellence…

For nearly 10 years Ontario Contact has recognized those presenters, artists, and agents who go above and beyond to contribute to the touring and presenting sector in our province.

New for 2019, one very special award will be presented at Ontario Contact. The Ontario Presents Award of Excellence will recognize an individual who has made extraordinary contributions to our field.

To Nominate:

Simply email info@ontariopresents with the name of your nominee, their organization (if relevant), and a few sentences on why you feel they are deserving of this award. That’s it!

2020 nomination deadline will be in August 2020


Your nominee must:

  • Have participated in or attended a recent Contact
  • Been actively operating in Ontario in the past year
  • Demonstrated levels of professionalism, commitment to sustaining the presenting community and support by their peers, clients and audiences
  • Have established some sense of legacy – demonstrated impact has been over time, rather than just bursting on the scene

The winner will be selected by a committee comprised of presenter, agent, and artist representatives.
