$5,000 – Bita Cattelan Philanthropic Engagement Award
offered by Bita Cattelan
The CMIM innovates with the creation of this prize, the threefold objective of which is:
• Recognizing and encouraging the competitors’ philanthropic involvement
• Encouraging an openness to the world and its diverse community
• Developing a sense of civic engagement in artists
The Bita Cattelan Philanthropic Engagement Award recognizes a competitor who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to community through volunteerism, involvement, or support of a charitable cause. A portion of the award will be donated to a cause or project presented by the competitor.
