BRIO Panelist nomination

About BRIO

Into its 22nd year, Bronx Recognizes Its Own (BRIO) continues to provide direct support to individual Bronx artists who create literary, media, visual, and performing works of art. 25 BRIO grants of $3,000 each are awarded to Bronx artists at the BRIO Awards ceremony in June 2011. BRIO award winners complete a one-time public service activity.

Only artists living in the Bronx are eligible to apply.

Selection of awards is based solely on artistic excellence – the quality of work submitted – and decided by a panel of professional artists representing the various disciplines. A new panel is convened each year. All materials and information involved in the selection process are kept confidential and are viewed anonymously by the panelists. When the application package is received, a code number is assigned to each application and its corresponding material in place of the applicant's name. The applicant’s coded submission is the only information available to the panelists for review.

Panelist Requirements

The ideal panelist in each category would be a generalist in the sub-categories listed below, or have a competency in two or three of the subcategories. Panelists for BRIO cannot live in the Bronx. All panelists receive an honorarium. New panels are convened each year. Individuals selected to serve on a panel will receive an information packet, a letter of confirmation with the date, location, and time of the panel meeting. All panels meet for half a day. Literary Arts panelists receive manuscripts to read one month before the panel meeting, and receive a $150 honorarium. All other panelists receive a $100 honorarium. Panels will be held in April 2011.
