I love the work of a particular artist but I'm not sure if they are entrepreneurial. Should I nominate them?
Artistic merit is factored into the selection of award recipients, but it is not a primary consideration. We will be looking for nominees who are creating new business practices or paradigms, developing novel solutions to old problems, and disrupting notions about the creative marketplace. Artistic merit will be reviewed once a nomination is deemed entrepreneurial.
An organization/person in my community is providing incredibly impactful services. Should I nominate them?
When nominating a positively impactful organization, try to identify their "secret sauce" and emphasize what they are doing that others are not. We will be primarily looking for nominees who are creating new business practices or paradigms, developing novel solutions to old problems, and disrupting notions about the creative marketplace.
Do I have to be a member of Fractured Atlas to nominate an artist?
No, we welcome nominations from everyone. Furthermore, nominated artists do not need to be members to be considered.
I already have a membership to Fractured Atlas. If I am selected as a recipient will I qualify for free membership?
Yes, if you are an award recipient we will make sure you have a complimentary membership going forward.
Can I nominate myself?
Yes, you may nominate your organization, small business, project, or self.
Can I nominate more than one person or company?
Yes, we want as many nominations as possible.
Can I save my nomination form and complete it at a later date?
No, unfortunately the form does not have a save function, so you may want to consider drafting longer responses in a text document.
When will the 2017 award recipients be announced?
