The Henry Allen Moe Prize for Catalogs of Distinction in the Arts

Entries for each year's prize must have been published the previous year. Entries must be submitted in four copies, accompanied by a letter of transmittal stating intent to enter the contest, and received on or before February 28 of each year. Only catalogues treating collections located or exhibited in New York State qualify.

Selection will be by a committee of scholars and museum administrators. A successful entry should add new information to what is known about the subject, and may completely document an important exhibition.  Thank you to all of the participants who submitted their catalogues in this year’s Henry Allen Moe Prize competition.
