The Phyllis Lambert Design Montréal Grant was created in honour of Ms. Lambert, Founding Director Emeritus of the CCA, a Great Montrealer and defender of the emerging generation in design.
The grant is awarded annually by the Ville de Montréal. It is intended to mark the outstanding quality of studies and work by Montréal designers who have 10 years or less of professional experience and to emphasize the interest they have shown in the city. Ms. Lambert also contributes to the professional development of this new generation as concerns urban design issues and promotes international exchanges within the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.
A $10,000 award is given to the grant recipient. The grant must be used for a professional development project that involves a design theme focusing on the city and takes place in one of the 41 cities of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.
The professional development project may be in the form of:
- a study trip;
- a work internship;
- participation in a design competition, workshop, symposium
- any other activity relevant to the advancement of a nascent design career
