By Aaron Humes: An outstanding line-up of prominent Belizeans received awards from the Government of Belize during the Belize@41 award ceremony, the unofficial kickoff of the September Celebrations.

The Beverley Smith Lopez Award for Acting in Theatre and Film went to Ray Gongora; the George Gabb Award for Visual Arts to Pen Cayetano (received by his brother, Ellington Cayetano, pictured); the Rosita Baltazar Award for Dance to Dawn Adderley; the Zee Edgell Award for Literary Arts to Lawrence Vernon; the Don Elijo Panti Award for Protection and Development of Traditional Knowledge to Susano Blanco; the Andy Palacio Award for Original Belizean Music to Bredda David Obi; and the Leela Vernon Award for Creative Community Action and Safeguarding Cultural Heritage to Brad Pattico.

Last year, as part of the Belize@40 September Celebrations, the NCC established the Belize@40 Prize to honour past and present Belizean creatives. The traditional Tribute to Belizean Patriots takes place later this month.

Cordel Hyde, Acting Prime Minister and Minister of Natural Resources, Petroleum and Mining, delivered the keynote remarks at today’s ceremony, highlighting the many achievements of the awardees and encouraging all Belizeans to build on their cultural and creative contributions.
