The K.M. Hunter Artist Award is granted in six categories (Dance, Literature, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts) to Ontario residents in mid-career with a reasonable body of work. Each winner is awarded $8000. These awards are meant to propel artists to reach the next level in their careers.
The six winners will be honoured by the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation, who finances the prizes, at an event at the Gladstone event at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto later in May.
Transatlantic would also like to congratulate the other five winners!
