Every year RAW hosts a national competition that engages our entire community and the nation at large. The competition runs from October-December and consists of an online vote, a RAW Director's score, a semi-finals showcase with local judges and an attendee vote and a final national judges score to determine the winner. Winners are honored in Los Angeles in January and receive big career boosting prizes. If you are attending a RAWards Semi-Finals event you will be asked to contribute your vote. You'll receive 8 votes one for each category, it is your job to look and listen and choose your favorite. A local panel of judges will also contribute their scores. The winner in each category (Fashion, Music, Art, Performing Art, Hair, Makeup, Accessories and Photography), will be deemed the artist of the year for Phoenix. These local winners will go on to represent Phoenix in the final round and be viewed and scored by our National RAWards Judges.
