NOMINATIONS FOR THE AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE ARE OPEN

Nominations are open for the Awards for Excellence, our annual prize dedicated to recognizing groundbreaking new scholarship in the field. Since their launch in 2004, we have honored nearly 150 curators. The Awards are the only recognition of their kind by which curators directly honor the work of their colleagues, and are highly esteemed by the arts community.  

As curatorial roles evolve, the AAMC has continued to review the Award categories and vetting process to be inclusive of all curatorial achievements in scholarship, education and visitor experience. More information is available here.

AWARD CATEGORIES
The nominated material is required to have been published/created/on-view (as appropriate for each category) between January 1 - December 31, 2017.  

CATALOGUE/PUBLICATION
Awards for printed or basic PDF catalogue or publication are separated out by institutional operating budget. International exhibitions and those featuring permanent collections are encouraged. Nominations are submitted in the following operating budget categories:

EXHIBITION
The exhibition nominated must have been on view to the public at the host institution nominated in 2017. International exhibitions and those featuring permanent collections, especially those that push the boundaries of curatorial practice, are encouraged. Nominations are submitted in the following operating budget categories:

DIGITAL PUBLICATION
Nominations in this category are to be book-or-publication entries, not apps or virtual exhibitions. They also must have been created intentionally only for the digital realm, date-time-stamped for 2017,  and be accessible solely in digital form (i.e., not a pdf of a book). Awards for digital publications are vetted by groups of curator jurors.

ARTICLE, ESSAY OR EXTENDED CATALOGUE ENTRY
The work needs to have been published in 2017, and nominees will be asked to submit a PDF of the entry.  This category is vetted by a group of curator jurors.


PROCESS
Award nominations are submitted electronically and can only be made by current AAMC members. Nominated curators do not need to be AAMC members but must be eligible for membership and become a member should they be selected as an Awardee. International and self nominations are encouraged and welcomed. A nominator may submit more than one nomination in one or many categories.

Awardees are notified upon selection in February-March, and asked to provide confirmation of exact listings and additional information, update their membership record, and secure, if possible, attendance at the ceremony. Those not selected for an Award are not notified, keeping the nomination process anonymous.


AWARD PRESENTATIONS

The Awards for Excellence Reception will be held during the Conference, on Sunday, May 6, 2018, in Montreal, and we hope all Awardees will be able to join us at the event. Ability to attend the event does not influence the award selection process.
