The CITT/ICTS Awards are designed to honour individuals and/or companies from a wide spectrum of the Canadian live performance industry. The nomination of candidates for CITT/ICTS Awards is driven directly by the membership, allowing members to recognise the work of a mentor, colleague or someone whose work you admire. The final selection is made by a committee of the CITT/ICTS board of directors, made up of the members at large from the sections and the chair of the awards committee.
