“The ACKER Award is a way to pay tribute to members of the avant-garde arts community who have made outstanding contributions in their discipline in defiance of convention, and to those who have served their fellow writers and artists in outstanding ways.”

Clayton Patterson creates the award- a box which is decorated every year by a different artist. This year the artist for the box is John Gagliano @ Overthrow Boxing and includes a contribution from all 40 awardees.
