2019 Awards Ceremony

The Arctic Inspiration Prize is excited to again be partnering with the Northern Lights Business and Cultural Showcase for the 8th Annual AIP Awards Ceremony.

The ceremony will unveil and celebrate a single $1 million laureate, plus up to four laureates in the AIP category (up to $500K each) and up to seven youth laureates (up to $100K each) from across the Canadian North.

Nunavut’s Thomas Anguti Johnston, actor, writer and film maker and CBC North’s Christine Genier, Yukoner and citizen of the Táän Kwách'än Council, will be hosting the event.

Joining Anguti and Christine on stage are some of the North’s most talented artists: Deantha Edmunds, Inuk classical soloist; the guitar-fiddle duo of Yukoners Boyd Benjamin and Kevin Barr; Nunavik’s Sylvia Cloutier; Dene Orator Lawrence Nayally and Arctic Soul icons, Josh Q and The Trade-Offs – performing under the masterful direction of the NWT’s Juno award winner Leela Gilday.

We hope you can join us on the evening of Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, Ontario for this inspiring celebration!
