The AWA is a very small group of dedicated members and supporters who work to bring more visibility to the contemporary western artists who are working to make their art better and to also bring in more new artisans who stretch the boundaries to new levels. The AWA is a non profit group. The Academy of Western Artists "Will Rogers Cowboy Awards" came about in 1996, when western publisher, Bobby Newton, decided there needed to be some kind of recognition for the performers and artisans who were taking the contemporary cowboy and western movement to new and exciting heights.

The Academy Of Western Artists, Keeping Western Heritage Alive Forever. The first awards were held in the ballroom of the Holiday Inn North in Fort Worth, Texas with a capacity crowd on hand and it has progressed since then, to be one of the highest recognition for the western arts in the world. There have been almost 500 winners in the many categories recognized by the AWA. Each year, some categories are added and some are deleted to meet the ever changing scene of the western contemporary arts.
