Call for nominations: Maine Craft Artist Award

The 2021 Maine Craft Artist Award will be announced in May with an award presentation and exhibition later in the year.

In 2009, the Maine Crafts Association began to honor individual Maine craft artists each year by awarding recognition for a body of work that is exceptional. This award will confer the prestige and acknowledgement that comes with having the artist’s work achieve a distinguishing mark of excellence.

To nominate a Maine craft artist (self-nominations permitted), fill out the online form at

All craft artists nominated in since 2018 will be automatically considered for the 2021 award. If the artist does not have a good representation of their work or bio/resume online, follow up the nomination submission with an email to Sadie Bliss with that material at

Nominations of BIPOC Maine craft artists are strongly encouraged.

Deadline is April 15.
