Who can nominate a company?
Anyone can do it—an individual, an arts organization, or company employee.

Which companies are eligible?
Companies large and small that support the arts in the United States are eligible. Tax-exempt nonprofit organizations are ineligible. Once a company has been selected as a BCA 10 honoree, there is a 3-year period of ineligibility before a nomination can be submitted again.

What information is needed to nominate a company?
You are asked to submit a 600-word nomination statement. This statement should address how the company supports the arts including: leadership, long-term commitment, impact, addressing community needs, employee and customer involvement, and encouraging other companies to support the arts.

Nominations for the 2016 BCA 10: Best Businesses Partnering with the arts in America will open in November 2015.

The following companies have been recently honored at The BCA 10 for their outstanding support of the arts. They are currently ineligible for the 2016 BCA 10. We congratulate them on their recent honor!
