Every three years a group of jurors gather to determine the finalists of the Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition. They also choose the prizewinners who are given cash awards. But we leave one choice—The People’s Choice Award—up to YOU! During the open voting period the public is invited to cast a vote for their favorite portrait on view in The Outwin exhibition. The finalist with the most votes at the end of the voting period is declared the winner of the People’s Choice Award and receives $500.
This year’s winner is Elsa María Meléndez, with the textile work titled Milk.
