The Arts Alive Awards honor recipients in the following categories: Emerging Artist; Outstanding Artists in Theatre, Dance, Music, Literary, and Visual Arts; Arts Educator; Collaborative Project; IDEA Leader; Rising Arts Leader; and Arts Patron.

In addition to these categories, Summit Artspace selects recipients of the following awards: Summit Artspace Champion, Arts Alive Award, and Lifetime Achievement.
