Doug and Lois Mitchell Outstanding Calgary Artist Award: This award was established to honour artists who are lauded for their work in national and international arenas and choose to make Calgary their home.
Enbridge Emerging Artist Award: This award was established to recognize up-and-coming, Calgary-based artists.
