Artadia employs a rigorous two-tiered jury process that combines local expertise with outside perspective from leading national and international curators, artists and critics. A preliminary panel of curators and artists evaluates all submissions and selects 10 Finalists.  A second panel of curators travels to the Award city and conducts studio visits with the 10 Finalists.
