Victor C Polley Award for Arts Administrators

The Victor C. Polley Award was given to an emerging Arts Administrator who demonstrated outstanding ability in his or her field.  This award commemorated the commitment and achievements of the late Victor C. Polley, long-time administrator at the Stratford Festival and the St. Lawrence Centre.

Nominations were open to any person in any administrative position that involved responsibility for managing people or information, such as Publicist, Events Coordinator, Facilities Manager, General Manager or an assistant to a senior management position.  The nominee was in the early stages of an administrative career (at least two years in the profession and probably no more than five years in the industry.)  The nominee was a resident in Ontario and employed by a performing arts organization.

Recipients of the award were Elaine Calder, Heather Redick, Christopher Bye, Victoria Steele, Tamara Ivanochko, Linda Brown, Sara Muerling, Jennifer Ross, Beverley Brown-Sweeting, Ron Berti, Nancy Webster, Taylor Raths, Sean Trofin, Laura J. Forth, Erin O'Rourke, and Lyndee Hansen.
