Nominations are Now Open

Robert Jekyll Award for Leadership in Craft

Leaders in craft inspire, energize and educate through their passion for craft. Advancing and elevating the sector, craft leaders dedicate time, energy and expertise to the community. Help us recognize and honour individuals who have led the way for craft as a volunteer, administrator, collector, maker, educator and more. The call for 2022 nominations for the Robert Jekyll Award for Leadership in Craft is now open and closes August 15th. 

Now is your chance to nominate an esteemed individual who has uniquely impacted Canadian craft regionally, nationally, or internationally. The Robert Jekyll Award celebrates distinguished contributors to the craft sector and it is one of the highest markers of exceptional commitment to development of the craft community in Canada. There are countless exceptional leaders who dedicate significant time and energy to Canadian craft and we’re looking forward to celebrating the 2022 Robert Jekyll Award laureate. 

The award is made possible through the generous donation by Robert Jekyll, the founding president of CCF/FCMA. Through Robert Jekyll’s contribution, the 2022 laureate will receive a $2,000 honorarium. While he is known for over 30 years of remarkable stained glass work, Robert Jekyll is also respected as a major force in the creative community at large, advancing the status of Canadian craft across the country. Administrative support of this award comes from the generous contributions of donors through the Canada Helps website. 

How to Nominate

CCF/FCMA Affiliate Members and Craft Council Members in good standing with the CCF/FCMA, past Robert Jekyll Award recipients, and the CCF/FCMA Board of Directors are all eligible to submit a nomination. If you are a current member of a Provincial or Territorial Craft Council in Canada, then you are eligible to nominate. Recipients will be chosen based on the impact they have had in advancing the respect for and recognition of the craft sector. National impact is preferred, but regional impact at a provincial or territorial level will be considered. 

To be a recipient of the Robert Jekyll Award for Leadership in Craft is to be recognized as an invaluable citizen of craft. Previous award winners come from all across Canada and embody a remarkable commitment to craft culture. CCF/FCMA is looking forward to another spectacular call for nominations.
