$5,000 – Bita Cattelan Philanthropic Engagement Award 
offered by Bita Cattelan
The CMIM innovates with the creation of this prize, the threefold objective of which is:
• Recognizing and encouraging the competitors’ philanthropic involvement
• Encouraging an openness to the world and its diverse community
• Developing a sense of civic engagement in artists

The Bita Cattelan Philanthropic Engagement Award recognizes a competitor who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to community through volunteerism, involvement, or support of a charitable cause. A portion of the award will be donated to a cause or project presented by the competitor.

The CMIM salutes the work of the jury members of the Bita-Cattelan Philanthropic Engagement Award under the chairmanship of Jean-Pierre Primiani: Bita Cattelan, Nicolas Ellis, François Leclair and Andrew Wan.
