The semi-finalists, finalists, and winner are all chosen by an independent panel of jurors. The semi-finalists will be announced February 15 and the finalists will be announced on April 12. The winner of the $25,000 prize will be announced at a special award ceremony on July 9. Artscape is held July 15-17, 2011.
