Posted in nominations by Editor on May 26, 2010

College Art Association Awards
Nominations due by July 31 / August 31

CAA encourages you to make a nomination for the twelve Awards for Distinction for 2011. The different perspectives and anecdotes from multiple personal letters of recommendation provide award juries with a clearer picture of the qualities and attributes of the nominees.

In your letter, state who you are; how you know (of) the nominee; how the nominee and/or his or her work or publication has affected your practice or studies and the pursuit of your career; and why you think this person (or, in a collaboration, these people) deserves to be recognized. We also urge you to contact five to ten colleagues, students, peers, collaborators, and/or coworkers of the nominee to write letters; no more than ten letters are considered. (Letters of support are important for reference, but the awards decisions are the responsibilities of the juries based on their expert assessment of the qualifications of the nominees.)

Nominations for book and exhibition awards (see additional information below) should be for authors of books published or works exhibited or staged between September 1, 2009, and August 31, 2010. Books published posthumously are not eligible.

All nominations should include the nomination form and the nominee’s abbreviated CV (limit: two pages). The address for all nominations is: 2011 Awards for Distincton, College Art Association, 275 Seventh Avenue, 18th Floor, New York, NY 10001. Deadline: July 31, 2010, for the Morey and Barr Awards; August 31, 2010, for all others. Please write to Lauren Stark, CAA manager of programs, for more information about the nomination process.
