A&B Cymru also works with a range of event partners on its flagship awards, all of which are central to the success of the ceremony. They are media partner Orchard Media & Events, entertainment sponsor Waterstone Homes, Carrick Design, Celtic Spirit Company, Flower Lodge, Fruitapeel, John Lewis Caerdydd, Kuoni, Llanllyr Source, Park Plaza Caerdydd and Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts.
For the 4th year, the crucial role that individuals play in supporting the arts across Wales is being recognised by the A&B Cymru Philanthropy Award. Personal generosity is playing an increasingly important part in Welsh cultural life and A&B Cymru has a major role in encouraging public recognition for this method of arts support.
The award winners will be chosen by an independent panel of judges who have expertise in practical art forms, sponsorship and the aims of the private sector. The individuals who will judge the business partnership categories are: David Anderson, Director General, National Museum Wales, Gareth Lloyd Roberts, Director, Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Kathryn Roberts, Senior Partner Cardiff, Eversheds, Gill Sandford, Dean, Faculty of Creative Industries, University of South Wales and Jenny Whitham, Managing Director, Patchwork Traditional Food Company. The winner of Business Adviser of the Year will be judged separately by two former winners of the award and stalwarts of A&B Cymru’s Professional Development Programmes, Head of Strategy at Legal & General, Paul Ralley and Kay Walters, director of HR Consultancy Pobol. The successful individuals and companies will once again receive trophies specially commissioned for the ceremony. This year they will be designed and made by Welsh Sculptor Sara Myers.View all news
