Selected through a blind adjudication process conducted by an independent panel of highly accomplished artists, the winners represent the top 10 percent of applications. Of each year's winners, some are awarded for excellence in multiple disciplines at various levels. Winners are named Finalists, the organization’s highest honor, Honorable Mention and Merit winners.
Finalists have the opportunity to participate in National YoungArts Week in Miami in January. All winners become part of a professional network of over 20,000 alumni artists and are eligible to participate in YoungArts’ regional programs, including YoungArts Miami in February, YoungArts Los Angeles in March and YoungArts New York in April.
