About the Awards
Awarded at the AAMC Annual Conference & Meeting, and open to all AAMC members in good standing, the Awards celebrate curatorial excellency with non-cash prizes.  The Awards are the only of their kind by which curators honor their own.


Prizes are awarded for in the following categories:

Outstanding Catalogue or Publication (digital or print)

Outstanding Essay, Article, or Extended Catalogue Entry (digital or print)

Outstanding Exhibition or Installation

Categories of awards are subdivided based on museum operating budget, with the exception of the Essay, Article, or Extended Catalogue Entry.

Museums with operating budgets up to $4 million

Museums with operating budgets between $4 and $20 million

Museums with operating budgets over $20 million

AAMC members are encouraged to make nominations and may nominate more than once in any category. The publications awards will be determined by a jury, and where applicable for each operating budget category. The exhibition awards are determined by the AAMC prize committee, which will serve as the de facto jury for that awards category.
