Some art shows are judged and present awards to artists who
excel in their medium.  My personal view is that the award is not
the focus, selling art is.  It is gratifying however to be recognized
for excellence by your piers and colleagues. It is also really cool
get a check along with the award.
So, in light of that introduction, please allow me to brag a bit...
