I just found this notice from Art &Education, an e-mail press release service maintained by ArtForum and E-Flux, in my overflowing inbox (sorry if I haven’t responded to your email), and I think there are plenty of bloggers out there who deserve this award. Let’s all pitch in and nominate our favorite bloggers.
The Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts and the Skandalaris Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at Washington University in St. Louis would like to invite your nominations for the Skandalaris Awards honoring outstanding achievement in design and the visual arts. These awards will be announced August 1, 2009, and presented at the first joint conference of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) and National Council of Art Administrators (NCAA), November 4-7, 2009, in St. Louis, Missouri.
SKANDALARIS AWARDS FOR ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN DESIGN & VISUAL ARTS
Two awards will be given to individuals who have demonstrated leadership and entrepreneurship in the fields of Art + Design + Architecture on a local, national or international level by promoting or establishing innovative understandings of “economy,” particularly through community-based and/or sustainable practices. Two 20,000 USD awards will be presented at the conference. The funds may be used to help support new or ongoing projects and/or creative research that will contribute to the social, cultural and environmental welfare of a community. Each of the two awardees will be asked to present their work in the form of a short lecture.
The selection committee will be comprised of national leaders in the fields of art, design and architecture.
To be considered for the Skandalaris Awards, the selection committee must receive a letter of nomination identifying the work and highlighting the accomplishments, research or creative activities of each nominee. This must be accompanied by adequate digital documentation in the form of a CD, DVD or relevant web site links. Nominations are due May 15, 2009.
Nominations should be sent to:
