Honoring the most impactful Israeli artists
The America-Israel Cultural Foundation (AICF) funds young Israeli talent by opening necessary doors for young artists to develop their skills in Israel and worldwide. By encouraging creative excellence in today’s youth from all backgrounds and supporting artistic organizations and programs across Israel, AICF unites Israel with the rest of the world through a shared passion for arts and culture, and puts a spotlight on Israel as a global hub for the arts.
In celebration of its 80th anniversary, AICF is launching its inaugural ICA Awards— Israeli Culture & Arts Awards — to honor the most impactful Israeli artists in the performing, visual, design, television, and cinematic arts for their contribution to the global cultural landscape. Finalists and winners will be honored at the ICA Awards ceremony on November 17, 2019 at the iconic Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The awards will:
- Shine a positive light on the impact of Israeli artists on the world’s stage and create a new channel of exposure through a prestigious award ceremony.
- Recognize excellence in the arts and induct into our annual Hall of Fame Israel’s top artists who represent areas in which AICF has funded.
- Encourage support for the next generation of Israel’s top artists.
Nominations will be accepted online from July 15, 2019 through September 1, 2019, and can be made by the general public on behalf of the artistic pioneers or can be a self-entry.
