The 2020 Neddy at Cornish awards application period is OPEN NOW September 1st through October 25th!

The Neddy at Cornish offers one of the largest artist awards in the Pacific Northwest, this year providing two gifts of $30,000, and six of $2,000, to visual artists based in the Puget Sound region.

Any artist who is a U.S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident living and working in Island, Jefferson, King, Kitsap, Mason, Pierce, Skagit, San Juan, Snohomish, Thurston, or Whatcom counties in Washington state is welcome to apply. Applications are free and artists may apply in either Painting or Open Medium categories. For more information, please visit our FAQ page.

Each year, eight finalists are selected by a rotating panel of three Local Jurors. The finalists are split evenly between Painting and Open Medium categories. All eight finalists are featured in an exhibition honoring their work, curated by an annually rotating Curator. From the selection of finalists, two grand prize awardees, one in Painting and one in Open Medium categories- are selected by an annually rotating National Juror.

The Neddy at Cornish program is funded by a grant from the Behnke Foundation and stewarded by Cornish College of the Arts as a tribute to the Seattle painter and teacher Ned Behnke (1948 – 1989).
