The nominees were:

• Dawn Ewen—an accomplished ballet performer and choreographer, she’s a teacher at the Gateway Theatre Academy for the performing arts.

• Elsa Rojas-Marquez—a performer and promoter of Latin music, she helps fundraiser for non-profit groups and is known for her artistic flair and personality.

• Tara Nakano—an advocate for the arts who has volunteered at arts festivals, tutored children and served as the volunteer videographer at gala events.

• Ying Wang—the founder and artistic director of the Richmond International Film and Media Arts Festival, she brought her vision to quickly grow the event from its grass roots origins.
