Awarded at the AAMC Annual Conference & Meeting, and open to all AAMC members in good standing, the Awards celebrate curatorial excellency and are the only of their kind by which curators honor their own. AAMC members are encouraged to nominate other colleagues' exhibitions and publications by colleagues or to self-nominate. A member may nominate more than once in any category. Nominations close, with all material to have been submitted, on January 19, 2015.

Once the forms have been submitted electronically, AAMC will notify the nominator about the additional steps required (i.e.: sending out copies of the publication, any additional material required if the application was incomplete).  Jurors will review the nominations in the Article/Essay/Extended Catalogue and Catalogue/Publication categories, and the Prize Committee reviews the Exhibitions/Installations. Jurors and the Committee will meet in February 2015 to select the Award recipients, whom will be notified in late March/early April.  Formal announcements will be made on May 11, 2015 at the 14th Annual Meeting in NYC.
