Winners are chosen for their caliber of artistic achievement by esteemed discipline-specific panels of artists through a rigorous blind adjudication process and are awarded in three categories: Finalist, Honorable Mention and Merit. This year, YoungArts award winners at all levels receive cash prizes between $100 and $10,000.
Finalists have the opportunity to participate in National YoungArts Week + in January. All award winners join a 20,000-strong alumni community, made up of a rich network of peers, and are provided support and opportunities throughout their artistic careers.
