Kent Creative Awards

in association with


A celebration of Arts and Culture in Kent

An annual event, the Kent Creative Awards celebrate the arts and culture in Kent and those who help maintain and develop the creative sector in Kent.

The event rewards contributions to the cultural world of Kent from individuals and organisations and highlights the variety of creative works, projects and events created across the county.

Culture is at the heart of successful economies and happy communities. It lifts our spirits and offers crucial opportunities that contribute to our well-being and quality of life. The creative economy accounts for almost a tenth of the UK economy and is one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK. Some recent successes have demonstrated the excellence of the UK creative industry.
Kent County Council has identified key sectors with growth potential for Kent and the creative sector is one of them. Arts and culture in Kent do raise the profile of the county; places with a strong cultural identity attract tourism, bring in more visitors and energize the local economy.

Goals of the Kent Creative Awards 

  • Inspire cultural success
  • Encourage artistic excellence
  • Motivate entrepreneurship in the creative sector
  • Increase awareness of the economic potential of Kent’s creative sector.
