The time has come to recognize and celebrate the exceptional women who inspire us. The 2024 Imprint Awards are now open for nominations, and we invite you to be a part of this momentous occasion. These awards will honor two outstanding women who embody the spirit of Imprint, with a focus on their professional career accomplishments, their contributions to their field, and their commitment to community leadership.
The commissioned artist will use their talents to help honor our two award recipients with the creation of the award itself as a symbol of impactful female leadership. This prestigious opportunity allows the selected artist to leave her own imprint with the award honorees and her connections, the Professional Dimensions network of female professionals, the viewers of the Professional Dimensions Art Collection at Alverno College, and the greater Milwaukee community.
The artist selection is open to any Wisconsin-based woman artist who consistently shows skill and originality in a medium such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, or fiber.
The selected artist will receive a monetary honorarium of $6,000 for the creation of three art pieces, recognition as an honored guest at the 2024 Artist Reception and the 2024 Imprint Awards dinner. Additionally, the artist will have a one-year honorary membership to Professional Dimensions.
Art awards will be presented to each of the two honored Imprint Award recipients in the Spring 2024. This is a fundraising event attended by more than 500 Milwaukee area business leaders in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The selected artist will create one additional piece for the Professional Dimensions art collection, which will be on permanent display at Alverno College.
Nominations Deadline: 11:59PM (CST) on Friday, November 3rd, 2023
Please note that nominations received after this deadline will not be considered for the 2024 Imprint Award. However, all nominations not selected as recipients will be eligible for re-submission in future years.
