Maker/Artist opportunity –
 Create Innovator Awards


We are seeking pitches from local artists and makers interested in designing and creating an award or trophy that will celebrate Yukon innovators and change makers at the first inaugural Innovation Awards on Nov. 20th, 2020.

The trophy can be anything that recognizes the important work of pivotal changemakers in the Yukon. We are very open to ideas. Anything from a sculpture, plaque, photography, other art or object will be considered. 

Pitch us your idea by Friday, October 23, at 11:59 pm (Pacific). Your pitch can take any format, but please include a budget outline and a sketch of your proposed award. We will be looking for 5 physical awards to be produced by the end of day Monday, November 16, 2020. Send your pitch to Victoria Kennedy, Marketing Coordinator, at [email protected]

These awards aim to inspire Yukoners to continue the important work of pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, challenging the status quo, striving to make a positive impact and recognizing the pivotal work of Yukoners who have improved life in the Yukon. 

In addition to compensation for this project, a free Makespace membership will be included for the duration of this project. 

For questions about this project, please contact Victoria Kennedy, Yukonstruct Marketing Coordinator at [email protected].
