  3. 5 finalists will be featured in the MARTYS program

During this year’s MARTYS, MAC will unveil a brand new, distinctive, crystal award that will be a sought after and cherished prize for anyone in the arts. Designed by Crystal Sensations, the people who created Canada’s Juno award, this unique piece will remain the same for years to come, establishing recognition as the highest arts award available in our city.

“It is with great pleasure and pride that we have accepted the responsibility to create and manufacture the Mississauga Arts Council MARTYS Award” – Jerome Bacchus, Vice President of Crystal Sensations
