mac birmingham needs your vote
mac birmingham is through to the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards 2010 and needs your votes to win.
After recent success at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors Awards, where as well as receiving the overall project of the year title in the regional finals mac birmingham also lifted the award for outstanding ‘Community Benefit’, the announcement of progression into the semi-finals of The National Lottery Awards further cements a great week in mac birmingham’s history.
mac birmingham is one of only ten projects to make it through to the semi finals in the Best Arts Project category of The National Lottery Awards and the only representative of Birmingham. The Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects, and they recognise and celebrate the difference that Lottery-funded projects make to communities across the UK.
The winning project in each category will receive national recognition on a star-studded BBC One TV show in early November and, in addition to the Lottery funding, if successful mac birmingham will receive a £2000 cash prize to spend on the project. In line with our ethos of providing excellent customer service the award, if we’re successful, will be spent on improving facilities for our customers especially children and people with disabilities.
Dorothy Wilson, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of mac birmingham commented “Crowning a triumphant first year of “new” mac birmingham we’re delighted to be in the semi-final for these prestigious awards. 850,000 visitors in our first 12 months can’t be wrong – mac birmingham is the most visited arts centre in the country and really is a place where the arts are genuinely for everyone. Help us to seal our success by voting for mac birmingham as an outstanding return on the investment provided by the National Lottery”.
Voting for the finals starts at 9am on Tuesday 31 May and ends midday on Monday 20 June. To register your vote for mac birmingham call 0844 836 9673 or click here
