About the Jury Process

Artadia convenes nationally recognized panels of jurors from around the country for two rounds. In the first round a jury of three reviews applications and determines a shortlist of 10 Finalists for the Artadia Awards. The second jury of three then meets with the shor-tlisted Finalists in studio visits, each up to 45 minutes after which 5 awardees are announced (2 awards of $15,000 and 3 at $5,000). Public programs with the awardees follows in the subsequent year. Please click on the panelists link to the left to access a full list of past jurors.
