The congrats letters have been mailed and the official list of BW Cover Auction Grant recipients has been announced. But whether you made the cut this year or didn't, you should take a gander at the furrowed-brow deliberation our celebrity judging panel put into the laborious selection process.
In the video below, you can watch Boise Mayor Dave Bieter, choreographer Trey McIntyre, Idaho Commission on the Arts director Michael Faison, CCDC executive director Anthony Lyons, Billy Mitchell of Mitchell+Palmer, BW Publisher Sally Freeman and BW Art Director Leila Ramella-Rader debate the merits of the 33 qualified applicants.
And don't forget: Mark your calendars now for Boise Weekly's 2012 Cover Auction, which takes place on Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the Idaho State Historical Museum.
