The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) invites its stakeholders and the public at large to nominate individuals for the 22nd ACT Awards. Held annually in recognition and celebration of excellence in South African arts, culture and creativity, the ACT Awards are one of ACT’s flagship programmes and have since 1998 recognised and honoured outstanding achievements and contributions to the sector.
The ACT Awards are divided into two major segments: the ACT Lifetime Achievement Awards and ImpACT Award for Young Professionals. The ACT Lifetime Achievement Awards honour living arts professionals aged over 60 whose extraordinary careers in the arts and lifelong achievements have contributed significantly to the enrichment of cultural life in South Africa. These awards honour contributions in arts advocacy, dance, literature, music, theatre and visual arts.
The ImpAct Award for Young Professionals recognises artists aged no older than 35 who are in the early stages of careers that show promise of making meaningful contributions to the sector in the future. (more…)

The Arts & Culture Trust has been in existence for 25 years. In that time, ACT has built a reputation for itself as the country’s premier independent funder of the South African arts, culture and creative sector. We are taking this milestone occasion of a quarter-century of impactful work in the sector to rethink the way that we look.
Keeping the process as transparent as possible, we sent an open call to designers to imagine what ACT will look like in the coming 25 years. We have chosen three logos which we believe are the strongest to come out of this process. Now it is up to you.
Have your say and vote for the logo which you feel best represents ACT now and will do so in future.
