The Association of Art Museum Curators has opened the call for nominations for the Awards for Excellence. The Awards honor curatorial achievements that create connections and engagements between nonprofit art organizations and the communities they serve. The Awards for Excellence will celebrate work that took place or was published between January 1, 2022 and December 1, 2022.

Nominations from outside the US are welcome and encouraged, as are self-nominations. The subject matter may cover any field and/or topic relevant to the curatorial field. The organization is specifically seeking nominations for original curatorial content that addresses issues in social justice, activism, diversity, access, equity, and inclusion.

The Awards this year will recognize achievement in the following categories: digital publication, digital exhibition, online program, non-catalog publication (print or online: essays, articles, brochures, blogs, magazines, journals, news stories), exhibition or installation (awarded by art organization operating budget category), publication* (awarded by art organization operating budget category).
