  • All Nominators will be writing about their nominee who is a local Avant Guarde artist i.e. one who is current and important in our day. We see these nominators as Champions of the artists they nominate.
  • Nominators have never nominated an artist before for the SD Art Prize or New Contemporaries show
  • All nominated artists will be included if they accept our invitation

Emerging artist definition: artist who are emerging with new, fresh ideas. This is not about the age of the artists or the exposure they have had, but what art they are creating now and in the past three to five years. We think of these artists as emerging from the darkness into the light of the public view.
