The exhibition takes place every January at the Joint Mathematics Meetings.  Three awards are made annually:  One for best photograph, painting, or print (US$400); one for best textile, sculpture, or other medium (US$400); and one honorable mention (US$200).  Starting in 2014, artists who have won a Mathematical Art Exhibition Award at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in year N will not be eligible for the $400 awards until the Joint Mathematics Meetings in year N+5. They may, however, display artwork in the intervening years. Honorable Mention awardees are eligible for award consideration in subsequent years.
