Nominate an alum for an award

Recognize creative excellence with ACAD's Alumni Awards.

Our alumni awards recognize the accomplishments of ACAD alumni who have earned local, national and/or international prominence through outstanding professional achievements, artistic endeavours, or service to society. These exceptional individuals honour ACAD, the greater community, and provide an invaluable source of inspiration to new artists and designers.

To be eligible for nomination, Alumni must meet the following definition:

  • Individuals who have received a for-credit certificate, degree or a diploma from ACAD (or formerly ACA)

Adjudication of alumni awards

An ad hoc selection committee consisting of an ACAD Board of Governors member, staff, faculty and student representatives and a previous Alumni Award recipient will adjudicate nominations. Recipients will be recognized at an annual event on campus that is open to the public.



Please contact if you have any questions about the ACAD Alumni Awards.
