    Hi Andrea,
    The prize is actually awarded by the Gershon iskowitz Foundation, not the AGO. The Foundation now partners with the AGO, and recipients exhibit there, but the prize itself is the legacy of Gershon Iskowitz through the foundation he started. Watch for a book on the history of the prize 1986 to 2006 coming this December!

    Ah yes, I should have clarified that.
    Thanks!
