EDGE AWARD

The Forward Arts Foundation is proud to announce that as of January 2019, their annual award previously known as the Emerging Artist Award has been re-named the Edge Award, in honor of Betty and Bob Edge who helped found the Emerging Artist Award twenty years ago. The newly named award, with new criteria, will be presented this April. Edge Award nominees are juried by a rotating panel who are active participants in the Atlanta arts community. The winner receives a $10,000 prize, a solo show at Swan Coach House Gallery, a two-week residency at The Hambidge Center, and mentorship opportunities. The remaining four finalists receive $2,000 each. The first Edge Award exhibition will take place in April 2020. To learn more, please read our press release.
