The Twin Cities Arts Reader periodically issues awards for various items related to arts and lifestyle programming in the greater Twin Cities metro region. These awards are made through a three-part process:
- TCAR staff nominate potential award recipients (generally individuals, productions, or organizations).
- The Editor in Chief reviews each award proposal and determines whether or not to endorse it.
- The final award proposal is sent to a staff committee for final approval.
The exact award categories will vary from year to year, as will the number of recipients.

Conflicts of Interest
In the event of potential conflicts of interest, staff members recuse themselves from the endorsement and approval process. Self-nominations are prohibited; however, we recognize that most of our staff are active in the Twin Cities arts and lifestyle areas, and do not exclude staff-affiliated activities and productions from consideration or coverage.
