For 2017 three nominators: Jose Luis Blondet, LACMA; Kristina Newhouse, CSULB; and Sara Cannon, LA Municipal Art Gallery each  chose ten mid-career artists for the award. Subsequently jurors Elizabeth Gerber, LACMA; Alma L. Ruiz; and Irene Tsatsos, Armory Center for the Arts made the final selections.
