Dana Rae MacDermott Memorial Award (DRaMMA)

In March 2022, the Silicon Web Board voted to re-christen the “Dreamcatcher” award to honor the life of Dana MacDermott, one of our founding members. The award is now known as the “Dana Rae MacDermott Memorial Award” (DRaMMA). The award recognizes “innovation in costume design, construction and presentation.”

The recipient receives a medal, a certificate, and a one year membership in the Silicon Web Costumers' Guild. The certificate was designed by Silicon Web Vice President Betsy Marks, and depicts the comedy and tragedy masks; a symbol widely recognized to represent the creative arts.

Three non-competing, non-judging members of Silicon Web must be present at the particular Masquerade for an award to be presented. There may be times when the members present decide that no entry in that particular masquerade merits an award.

The first DRaMMA awards were given in 2022 at Costume-Con 40. (see article in Virtual Costumer Vol. 20, Issue 2, 2022).

If you know of other winners, or recall exactly why a particular award was given please contact us.
