Creative Wales Ambassadors are selected following a nomination process. The nomination by a Wales based organisation and an organisation out of Wales are linked by a project initiated by the artist. The award is to the artist. However, the project that the artist undertakes must build creative links between Wales and the world. It is therefore the work of the artist that acts as ambassador for the creativity of contemporary Wales.
