The MRC de La Vallée-de-la-Gatineau organizes an annual recognition event that aims to showcase the people, municipalities, organizations and events, in the region, that have distinguished themselves in the arts, culture, recreation and sports fields.
The award ceremony takes place during a 5 to 7. The evening's main objective is to recognize the talent and commitment of people who often work in the shadows and sometimes public agencies that are unknown to many people.
Each year, the organizing committee invites local artists to present a trophy that represents the three sectors of activity covered by this recognition evening.
MRC invites municipalities and artistic, cultural, sports and recreational communities to submit the candidacy of a person, agency or municipality having distinguished oneself or itself significantly in one of the twelve following categories :

The MRC has decided to hold this event every 2 years. The next edition will be in 2018.
