Organization Name: The Neddy Artist Awards
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
The Neddy Artist Award program offers one of the largest unrestricted awards for artists in the Pacific Northwest, annually providing two gifts of $25,000, 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 website at https://plus.cornish.edu/community/neddy-artist-award.
Each year, eight finalists are selected by an annually rotating panel of three Local Jurors. The finalists are split evenly between Painting and Open Medium categories. From the selection of finalists, two grand prize awardees, one in Painting and one in Open Medium, are selected by an annually rotating National Juror. All eight finalists are featured in an exhibition honoring their work, curated by an annually rotating Curator.
The Neddy Artist Award 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).
