Festival curators nominate six artists exhibiting in the current season for the Creative Vision Award. Local jurors then vote to select one artist from the nominees whose work demonstrates a commitment to their personal voice and vision over conventional storytelling. This winner is rewarded with a placard and honorarium.
This year’s jurors are Paige Dansinger, John Kim, and Chamindika Wanduragala.
