Nominations & Awardees

Each year outstanding artists are nominated and selected for an Artists For A Better World International “Creating A Better World” award. The awardees are artists who have made contributions to the betterment of their fellow man, community, and/or world through the use of aesthetics. Stated another way, these artists are “helping others” through their work.
Nominate your favorite artists for an award today! Artists of all religions, nationalities, creeds, races and cultures may be nominated for these awards. In short, any artists who contribute to the creation of a better world are eligible to receive these awards.
These awards are presented each October at Celebrity Centre International in Hollywood, CA, as part of the AFABW Annual Awards Event & Concert, featured within the AFABW Arts Festival.
