Programmes // ACT Awards
The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) Awards are held annually in recognition and celebration of excellence in South African arts, culture and creativity. Since 1998, the ACT Awards have celebrated many individuals and organisations that have made a significant contribution to cultural life in South Africa.
A salient element of the ACT Awards is the presentation of Lifetime Achievement Awards. These prestigious awards honour arts professionals whose extraordinary careers have had a profound and lasting impact on arts, culture and heritage and whose lifelong achievements have contributed significantly to the enrichment of cultural life in South Africa. In addition, the ImpAct Award for Young Professionals recognises young professionals in the early stages of careers that show promise of making meaningful contributions to the sector in the future.
