Apply for a Family Arts Award


Now in their third year, the Family Arts Festival Awards this year become the Get Creative Family Arts Festival Awards, reflecting our partnership with BBC Arts’ year-long Get Creative initiative.

The awards have come to recognise outstanding achievement in family arts activity across the UK, which culminates annually in October’s Festival.

Awards are given in three categories:

  • Best Family Event
  • Best Family Venue
  • Best Family Welcome

This year, the awards have been split into two strands:

  • Audience Choice Awards: 1 award in each of the 3 categories, audiences vote for their favourite events and venues by rating them out of 5 stars. Remind them to rate your events!
  • Get Creative Family Arts Festival Awards: 4 awards in each category, decided by an expert judging panel.


To apply for a Get Creative Family Arts Festival Award, please download the application form and return it to by Monday 30th November.
