The MOTHA Art Awards are modeled after high-profile, industry- and identity-specific prizes such as the Lambda Literary and the GLAAD Awards, which celebrate a few achievements of the LGBT creative community and their mainstream media representations, respectively. The MOTHA Awards are also inspired by the performance-based artwork the Rob Pruitt Art Awards (theartawards2013.com). The MOTHA Awards highlight transgender contributions to our current cultural landscape while also highlighting the limitations inherent in such a system of competition, exclusion, tokenism, and positive-image pandering. Nominations and voting are open to everyone.
The winners of the 2013 MOTHA Art Awards will be posted to the MOTHA website (sfmotha.org) after December 1, 2013. Winners will receive nothing but the winning title. Winners must determine for themselves if the title signifies recognition of the merit of their work.
