RAW:natural born artists is an independent arts organization that throws a good party as well as it hand-picks artists to showcase. Leveraging the concept of "power in numbers," each month RAW SF packs 1015 Folsom with the work of over 50 emerging and established Bay Area artists — along with aerialists, burlesque performers, DJs, vendors, roaming photographers, body painters, and some 750 attendees. And now, for the fourth year running, RAW also leverages its nationwide reach to hold its RAWards competition, in which audiences and judges in 54 cities across the U.S. cast their votes for semi-finalists in a number of categories, including Visual Artist of the Year, Makeup Artist of the Year, and Photographer of the Year. The SF winners go on to represent our city at the RAWards Finals. Come on out in fashionable cocktail attire and cast your vote!

RAW SF says…

The top 3-5 nominees, in each craft, showcase in their city (54 shows across the nation on the same night!). The local community casts a LIVE VOTE! Three local judges, invited by RAW, also cast their vote. These two factors decide who will represent their town in RAWards Finals. City winners announced at the show!
