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 or BCA Hall of Fame honoree, there is a 3-year period of ineligibility before a nomination can be submitted.

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.

What happens after a nomination form is submitted?
After a nomination form is submitted, the BCA Coordinator will email the company contact provided in the nomination form with a questionnaire designed to elicit more specific information about the company's arts engagement and support. Completed questionnaires (typically between 4 and 8 pages in length) and nomination forms will be printed and mailed to our panel of judgesrepresentatives from the worlds of arts and business. All nominators and nominees will be notified of the results once the decisions have been tallied.
