Presented yearly for outstanding achievement in casting, awards are given on the criteria of originality, creativity and contribution of casting to the overall quality of a project. The term "Artios" is from the ancient Greek word meaning "perfectly fitted."

Each year, in addition to the awards presented to casting directors for their achievements in Theatre, Television and Film casting, the Casting Society of America also recognizes Industry notables with a Career Achievement Award, The New York Apple Award and bestows the Hoyt Bowers Award on one of its own. This year's honorees are: in NY, award-winning playwright Tony Kushner (A Bright Room Called Day; Angels in America, Parts One and Two; Slavs!; Homebody/Kabul; Caroline, or Change), will take home the much coveted New York Apple Award; and in LA, producer Marcy Carsey ("The Cosby Show"," Roseanne," " 3rd Rock From The Sun"," Grace Under Fire", "That 70's Show") will receive the Career Achievement Award, and casting director Ellen Chenoweth (Terms of Endearment, Good Night & Good Luck, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Michael Clayton, No Country for Old Men, A Serious Man), the Hoyt Bowers Award.
