The 2009 RateMyDrawings Artist Awards
RateMyDrawings is proud to announce our 2009 Artist Awards.
We honor and thank 5 amazing artists for their contributions to our community.
Introducing the first year of our Artist Awards. At the end of each year, we will be selecting individual members who have contributed to our community in a way that stands out and makes them a valuable member to so many others in our community. These individuals have shown either some type of skill, unique talent, or contributed in a way that betters our community. Winners will be chosen by Mick Gow (RateMyDrawings founder), with the exception of one award - The People's Choice.
The 4 Hand-picked Artist Awards
To be eligible for one of the 4 hand-picked awards, you must have contributed to our community in a memorable way in the year of 2009. This does not necessarily mean the top artist, but there will be some quality that makes you stand out and make us want to thank you personally for everything you have contributed.
The People's Choice Award
Our community would not be a true community if we could not find a way to let all our members have a voice, so we have included one People's Choice Award. This will be a vote by members for who they think has been their favorite artist in 2009. Only members with more than 5 drawings who have been members for more than 1 month may vote as we feel only these members have a true sense of who might be the most deserving of this award.
Winners announced January 9, 2010. Voting for People's Choice closes January 1, 2010.
Each winner will be able to choose 4 of their own favorite drawings to be printed on canvas.
The 24 inch wide by 8 inch high gloss canvas is printed and mounted as shown in the example above.
In addition to the canvas, the winners will also be added to our Hall of Fame page. In future years, all yearly award winners will be placed here.
