CALL FOR STORIES – SRQ Magazine's Annual Independent Spirit Awards

Nominate a Local Non-Profit With Your Story of Caring

When you share your story about a local non-profit organization, you will nominate them for consideration for the inaugural 2017 SRQ Independent Spirit Awards in one of the six categories of recognition: Animal Welfare, Children and Families, Arts and Culture, Education, Medicine and Health and Human Services.

This year, we welcome a panel of accomplished judges from Orlando to Miami, FL who will jury this special philanthropic program. Finalists and winners in each category will be announced at a memorable evening awards program headlining the SRQ MAGAZINE GOOD | GALA taking center stage at the historic Sarasota Opera House in Downtown Sarasota on Saturday, October 7, 2017 next year from 8pm to midnight.
 
           Call for Stories Opens:  Monday, August 1, 2016
           Deadline for Nominations: Saturday, December 31, 2016 by midnight.

Thank you for helping us recognize and celebrate the impact of local non-profit organizations.
