BAX Arts and Artists in Progress Awards

Awardees have revealed and transformed our creative world. By instigating and enduring change they have deepened the definition of their field and paved the way for others.

The PASSING IT ON AWARD creates a complete cycle where a panel of peers chooses the awardees and the awardees choose someone who demonstrates some of the same qualities that they, themselves, were chosen for.
