The National Career Awards, along with the Winston Art and Voice Scholarships, are competitions that are considered the “heart” of NSAL. The National Career Awards competition rotates from year to year amongst artistic disciplines supported by NSAL. All local chapters are invited to conduct a regional competition in the designated category.  . 

 

The competition is for young people who have passed their 18th birthday but not yet reached their 26th birthday as of May 29th.  Contestants must show evidence of career potential but not be under exclusive contract to a theatre, film or television agent at the time of the competition and must not be under professional management. 

 

All competitions are adjudicated by locally and nationally known professionals in the chosen discipline.  In addition, renowned judges conduct Master Classes for the contestants during the national competition. 

 

Along with providing young artists opportunities to earn monetary awards, the Annual Competitions allow professional critics, managers, producers, teachers, the media, and patrons of the arts a chance to see and hear emerging talent.  Additionally, NSAL recognizes the recipients of the Washington DC Chapter awards at our annual May chapter meeting.
