IAPS EMINENT PASTELIST

Eminent Pastelist pin The Eminent Pastelist honor has been designed to recognize those artists who have continued to have work accepted and/or awarded in IAPS juried competitions after achieving Master Circle level. The Eminent Pastelist category was established in the spring of 2012. Recipients of the award receive a new ribbon for their Master Circle medallion and a golden lapel pin with an inset ruby gem.

To receive the Eminent Pastelist designation, artists must accrue five (5) points to achieve Master Circle status; and then for Eminent Pastelist, another 10 points for a total of fifteen (15) points are needed.

Points may be obtained as follows:
  • One point for acceptance into any IAPS Juried Exhibition no matter the number of paintings accepted.
     
  • One point for any award given by the judge in any IAPS Juried Exhibition.
Only IAPS Juried Exhibitions accrue points; acceptance or awards in a member society’s exhibition does not count towards Master Circle or Eminent Pastelist status. Other eligible IAPS competitions have in the past included IAPS Convention Catalogue Cover Contests, the 2009 Calendar competition and the 2011 Poster Competition.

Recipients of the Eminent Pastelist Award are encouraged to bring it and their Master Circle Medallion with them to each convention to be worn at the Saturday Night Banquet.
