Our goal is to honor current, cutting-edge work being done right now, right here. This is not a lifetime-achievement award, nor is it a popularity contest, and nominees need not submit proposals outlining how they'd use the money. Instead, a committee of Houston Press representatives will evaluate the potential honorees in each field, and then pick winners whose cultural and creative contributions are helping to redesign -- and redefine -- where we live.
The awards will be given out early next year, date TBD.
