FORT LEE, N.J. -- The New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera, a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization based in Fort Lee, has been nominated for the first time as Favorite Opera Company in the 2016 JerseyArts.com People’s Choice Awards.

For eight years, the annual awards program, which is run by Discover Jersey Arts, pays tribute to the work of New Jersey’s vital, vibrant and diverse arts organizations.

“The People's Choice Award is a great honor, and we are incredibly grateful the New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera has been nominated," Artistic Director Lucine Amara said in a statement. "We hope new opera lovers will join us during 2016. Winning the award would give the company a distinctive place in the greater New Jersey cultural art scene."

The opera company is among 10 arts districts and 100 organizations that will compete in 16 categories, including favorite performing arts center, opera company, dance company, art gallery, choral group and more.

Public voting began Jan. 6 and continues through Feb.1. Winners will be announced and honored in early March at the New Jersey Conference on Tourism in Atlantic City.
