1. Exhibition awards are voted on by the entire membership of the AAMC. Members are not required to have seen the
exhibitions/installations in person in order to vote. As such, and to create the most informative
voting ballot, nominators are STRONGLY encouraged to submit up to five
images of exhibition installation views for consideration by the membership.
Exhibitions must have opened to the public within the calendar year
2011. If an exhibition bridges 2012, it is still eligible for
nomination in the 2011 category.
3. Exhibitions that traveled to multiple locations during 2011 should consider selecting one venue
to nominate, with preference given to the originating venue and in
consultation with all organizing curators. All individual organizing
curators will be awarded the prize should the exhibition win.
