Kent Creative Awards

A celebration of Arts and Culture in Kent

in association with


2016 Awards | 2017 Awards | 2018 Awards


An annual event, the Kent Creative Awards celebrate the arts and culture in Kent.  We want to give encouragement to individuals and organisations who make a worthwhile contribution to the artistic and cultural life of Kent.

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. 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
  • Boost creatives’ confidence
  • Encourage artistic excellence
  • Promote creative talent
  • Motivate entrepreneurship in the creative sector
  • Increase awareness of the economic potential of Kent’s creative sector.
