"This industry touches people's lives every day, helping them to discover their own unique creativity and to leave their own imprint on the world. There are heroic people within our industry who innovate, educate, and open up this world of creativity to others -- making a tremendous impact within the industry and in people's lives -- all without the need for personal recognition. The Industry Awards provide the opportunity to recognize individuals who have made a tremendous contribution to the creative industry, and a platform to showcase their efforts. Please complete the nomination application and give us the opportunity to honor these well-deserving individuals!" said Jessica Goursolas, CHA Awards Committee Chair.
