Nominations are being accepted through March 29 for the Winston-Salem's Arts, Culture, and Entertainment Memorial Walk of Fame, to be installed outside the Benton Convention Center.
The Walk of Fame honors deceased Winston-Salem residents who made a significant contribution in music, dance, theater, writing, visual arts, motion pictures, television, or radio. For purposes of evaluation, a significant contribution is one that is iconic in terms of renown and impact on the artistic disciplines or popular culture.
To be eligible, nominees should meet the following criteria:
- The nominee(s) exhibited sustained excellence in his or her field for at least five years.
- The nominee(s) made distinguished contributions to the community and civic-oriented participation.
- The nominee(s) is deceased.
- The nominee(s) was a resident of Winston-Salem for at least five years.
Nominations will be reviewed by the Memorial Walk of Fame Nominating Committee, a diverse panel of citizens, representing various artistic disciplines and fields within the entertainment industry. Up to five nominees will be recommended to the mayor and City Council.
More information and nomination forms are available at CityofWS.org/WalkofFame. The deadline for nominations for 2019 is Friday, March 29.
