The Inuit Art Foundation (IAF) will be accepting nominations for the 2021 Kenojuak Ashevak Memorial Award (KAMA). The award is open to mid-career and established Inuit artists working in visual and performance-based practices. The winner will receive a prize of $10,000. New in 2021, a shortlist of up to three additional artists will be named, each receiving a prize of $3,000. The winner and shortlist will be announced in September 2021.
Established in 2014 to honour the life and work of the late Kenojuak Ashevak, CC, ON, RCA (1927–2013), the award is a bi-annual prize, created to support the practice of an Inuk artist.
The IAF invites nominations from artists directly, as well as professional acquaintances including curators, gallerists, writers, critics, fellow artists and others in relevant fields, in support of an Inuit artist’s practice. Individual artists are encouraged to self-nominate if they wish to do so. All KAMA applications will be assessed by an external jury of Inuit arts professionals.

Nominations Close: Friday, June 25, 2021 @ Midnight EST
Award Amount: $10,000 to winner; $3000 to each of the three (3) shortlisted artists
