BEND, Ore. -

The City of Bend Arts, Beautification & Culture Commission (ABC Commission) is accepting nominations for the ABC Awards 2013. This award honors five individuals, organizations and businesses that have made significant contributions to the City's arts, culture, natural environment or public spaces in the year 2012.

Liz Rink, Co-Chair of the ABC Commission said, “Bend is buzzing with creative energy. We want to honor those who contribute to the arts, beautifying, or the culture of Bend.” The selections are based on an array of criteria including the level of community impact and strength of visitor attraction. In the past, ten awards were presented, but the Commission has decided that fewer awards make it more
prestigious.
