Nominate Someone for the 2006 Pollak Prizes
Richmond Magazine is accepting nominations for the 2006 Pollak Prizes. The nominees are recommended to a panel of selectors, who then choose the honorees. I don't know if the selectors have to actually choose from among the nominees or not, and the selectors are usually the previous year's winner in each category - 2004's Heide Trepanier chose 2005's Nick Kuszyk, 2004's Richard Roth selected 2005's Elizabeth King.
writer or poet
actor or director
vocalist or instrumentalist
ensemble (vocal or instrumental)
fine artist (painting,printmaking, or sculpture)
photographer or filmmaker
lifetime achiever - i guess this is in whatever art form?
Who will you nominate??? Say so in the comments. I need to think about it, but I'll update this post later with some names. The DEADLINE for nominations is June 30, 2006.
E-mail your nominations to Harry Kollatz at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post to 2201 W. Broad St, Richmond VA, 23220.
Nominees must be Richmonders, but I don't think you need to be a Richmonder to nominate.
