Over 200 artists were featured this year in a RAW Artists showcase, but only the top 35 will be honored Thursday night during RAWards. These emerging talents were hand-picked by community votes, judges votes and the Director of RAW New Orleans, Rachael Wingate. Featured will be live painters, dancers, musicians, make-up artists, hair stylists and many others. The event is part of a nationwide contest in 80 cities to find the best, fresh artists in 9 categories. The local winners will be notified Thursday evening that they were chosen to advance.

The RAWards showcase is from 7:30pm to midnight at Eiffel Society. For ticket information visit: http://www.rawartists.org/neworleans/rawards2013
