The Trawick Prize 10th Anniversary People’s Choice Award
Founded in 2003 by Bethesda businesswoman and philanthropist Carol Trawick, The Trawick Prize: Bethesda Contemporary Art Awards honors cutting edge visual artists from Maryland, Virginia and the District with $14,000 in prize money each year.
Carol Trawick, founder of The Trawick Prize, established The Trawick Prize “best of the best” Sapphire Award to mark the contemporary art competition’s 10th anniversary and honor the Best in Show winners from the past 10 years. In conjunction with the Bethesda Arts & Entertainment District and the Bethesda Urban Partnership, Trawick will hold a special “best of the best” competition and exhibition, featuring artwork by winners from 2003 – 2012.
A jury comprising the 30 jurors from the past 10 years will determine one “Best of the Best” Sapphire Award winner, who will receive $10,000. In addition, one artist, chosen by the public, will win The Trawick Prize 10th Anniversary People’s Choice Award. View the artwork online and vote for your favorite artist. The artist who receives the most votes wins $1,000.
