CAA has begun accepting nominations for the 2018 Awards for Distinction, which will be announced at the 106th Annual Conference in Los Angeles between February 21–24, 2018. All nominations must be sent with the proper nomination form including the nominee’s contact information.
Awards for Distinction are given to professionals in a number of art fields who have been nominated by others to receive recognition for their work. These include:
Distinguished Teaching of Art Award
Distinguished Teaching of Art History Award
Artist Award for Distinguished Body of Work
Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement
Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award for Writing on Art
Distinguished Feminist Award
CAA/American Institute for Conservation Award for Distinction in Scholarship and Conservation Award
All nominations are due September 1, 2017.
Nominations for Awards for Distinction require letters of support from the nominator that include the nominator’s identity, relationship to the nominee, how the nominee’s work has affected them, and why the nominee should be recognized for this particular award. It is recommended that nominators contact colleagues, students, and other professional contacts to write their own letters of nomination as well, bearing in mind that only five letters will be considered by the award jury.
Nominations for Awards for Distinction also require a short CV (approximately two-pages) of the nominee. For Lifetime Achievement awards, a web link to a longer version of the CV can be included within the two-page CV. All materials should be sent to Katie Apsey, CAA manager of programs.
