Any questions or comments on the exhibition can be emailed directly to Dr. Norton-Westbrook at Second, once the show is installed, the Museum will invite a guest juror of renown to jury prizes for the exhibition. Awards received are as follows:

Best in Show - $5,000

First Place - $2,500

Second Place - $1,500
