Composition of nominations
The organization of the TAA carefully appoints scouts every year to select works for the award show. The scouts visit the final examinations of the art academies and compile the nominations. The team of scouts consists of professionals from the visual arts and film world. The criteria for nomination are artistic authenticity, technical and original visual language. This year the works are selected by both Dutch scouts and pioneers from the host country. The British scouts visit six art academies with a specialization in audiovisual art: University of Art London (UAL), Plymouth College of Art, Leeds Art University, Manchester School of Art, Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) and Glasgow School of Art (GSA) . The team of British scouts consists of: Sarah Hill (founder and director of Video Jam), Hannah James (artist), Scout Stuart (film maker and screenwriter), Anna Field (visual arts publishing and digital consultant), Michaela Cullen (artist and co) -founder of Serf) and Vickie Fear (curator and co-director of Counter). The jury includes Priscila Fernandes (artist and residence coordinator Het Wilde Weten), Alexia Holt (associate director & visual arts program producer at Cove Park) and Marcus Jack (founder of Transit Arts and project coordinator at LUX, Scotland).
