Frank Prize Accepting Applications for Palm Beach County Performing Artists


The Board of Directors of The Randolph A. Frank Prize for the Performing Arts is happy to announce that early next year $10,000 will be divided among three outstanding members of the performing arts community working in Palm Beach County.

The Frank Prize was established to recognize and reward individual, dedicated performing artists and performing arts educators who enrich the quality of the performing arts in Palm Beach County.

Last year's honorees were Clarence Brooks, choreographer and Assistant Professor/Director of Dance at Florida Atlantic University (Emerging Artist Prize), actor Beth Dimon (Performing Artist Prize) and Michael Fraley, Director of Music at Boca Raton Middle School (Performing Arts Educator Prize).

The application procedure remains the same as last year. Three winners will be awarded as follows: one as an outstanding performing artist, one as an outstanding performing arts educator, and an emerging artist of note with a minimum of three years experience as a performer or as an educator in Palm Beach County.

"Speaking on behalf of the board, we are honored and grateful to be in this position of awareness raising with regard to the critical need for ongoing support of performing artists andPoste performing arts educators in our community."

- Steve Caras, Frank Prize Founding Chairman

Submission guidelines and criteria materials for the Frank Prize have been circulated throughout the county's arts institutions, schools and academies. Submissions, including all support materials, must be post marked by March 25, 2011. Winners will be announced in late April, 2011. They will be honored at an awards ceremony with time and place to be announced at a later date.
