Emerge Award

ATA’s Emerge Award is a membership award program that recognizes university students who have an interest in tapestry. A number of university textile programs are asked to select one student who has shown potential in using tapestry techniques in their projects for the award. This student will receive a one year membership in ATA, which includes the online journal – Tapestry Topics.  Each student will also be recognized in the journal and an image of one of their tapestries will be included. Awards will be given in the spring (Northern Hemisphere) and fall (Southern Hemisphere).
