Winners of the Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Awards Announced

The annual awards "recognize outstanding mid-career artists in the seven disciplines funded by the Canada Council: dance, integrated arts, media arts, music, theatre, visual arts and writing and publishing." The awards are worth $15,000 each, and the winners are selected by peer assessment committees of the Grants to Professional Artists programs.

Quebecois novelist André Girard (Port-Alfred Plaza) was selected as the recipient of the award for writing and publishing. Playwright, author and filmmaker Drew Hayden Taylor is the recipient of the award for theatre.
