This year, Dappled Things announced that it would be awarding a special prize for the visual arts, named in honor of St. Josephine Bakhita, for a painting, sculpture, or photography that “help us honor and highlight the infinite worth inherent within each victim of racial violence.” We were hoping to announce the winner by today, but with about 200 submissions to consider, the judges are still working on giving each piece the careful attention it deserves. We are currently working on whittling down a longlist of 38 finalists still in the running, and plan to announce the winner by the end of the month. Stay tuned because some marvelous work was submitted and we are excited to share it with you soon.
