The Creative Colorado Industries is proud to play a role in celebrating excellence in creative industries across the state. Each spring, the Division hosts the Creative Industries Summit. The event celebrates the achievements of Colorado creatives and the Governor presents the Creative Leadership Awards annually at the Summit.

Formerly the Governor's Arts Award, in 2014 the awards will adapt to honor those members that have demonstrated a significant commitment to Colorado’s creative landscape through civic leadership and volunteerism including advocacy, vision, collaboration, or innovation.
