The Halcyon Awards recognize and honor talented arts icons, successful entrepreneurs and public policy visionaries; change makers and trailblazers who’ve dedicated their lives to push past traditional boundaries and limitations to create a movement, lead an organization, or impact the world.
Previously The Washington Awards Gala, the 2017 inaugural Halcyon Awards Gala promises to be one of the most innovative annual events in the D.C. area. This special evening celebrates the most recently named Halcyon Awards winners with a program for guests, which includes world-class dining, an exciting auction, incredible performances, and lots of fun.
New For 2017
The 2017 Halcyon Awards Gala will debut three new awards that fully reflect the groundbreaking work that Halcyon supports.
- Business Luminary Award honoring a global pioneer in social enterprise
- Arts Icon Award spotlighting an icon of artistic and social impact
- Policy Visionary Award recognizing a champion of innovation and social entrepreneurship
These awards are just one of the many ways in which we are gathering the top minds in innovation, social enterprise and the arts for an unforgettable evening.
