Call for Adjudicators

Asian Impact Society is seeking adjudicators to join our Exhibition Committee to review and adjudicate submissions for our upcoming art exhibit and contest.
The exhibition theme is multiculturalism, diversity and anti-racism. Artwork submitted should address at least one of these themes. Through this exhibition, our goal is to educate the viewing public on why multiculturalism and diversity is important and why there is no place for racism in our communities.

The exhibition and contest is open to all ages and a variety of mediums including 2D and 3D artwork. Awards will be granted for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each age categories as follows:
Age 12 and under
Age 13 to 18

Experience adjudicating art exhibits an asset, but not required.
What to Expect
Adjudicators will participate in a Zoom orientation with the Exhibition Committee prior to jurying. The initial adjudication will take place virtually by reviewing images and artists statements of the artwork submitted. If necessary, an in person meeting will convene to determine final placement of the shortlisted artwork.
