Marie Darlin Prize Submissions

Marie Darlin Prize Submissions

The Marie Darlin Prize was established by Mike Blackwell and is an annual $5000 prize recognizing an outstanding work of art or literature. Mike Blackwell wanted to honor Marie Darlin who was a dedicated volunteer, Juneau historian, and community advocate until her death in June of 2018.  The prize specifically honors those whose work, through a vision and shared sense of community, expresses a commitment to women’s rights, social history, and community advocacy.

Before his death in January 2019, Mike spearheaded the fundraising for this prize through the Juneau Community Foundation and together the City Museum, the Friends of the JDCM, and a host of donors have established an endowment at the Foundation that will yield an annual income to support his vision. When Mike unexpectedly died in January 2019, a committee was formed to finalize the parameters of the prize and put in place a process for submission and selection.

Submission open through April 3, 2021.
