MasterMind Awards Now Accepting Submissions

It's hard out there for an artist, especially at this time of year. You have big dreams for your craft in the new year, but nearly no cash to make them come true, thanks to all the gifts you bought for those demanding loved ones of yours.

Miami New Times is here to help, with the MasterMind Awards, giving grants to the best artists in Miami. And all you have to do is show us your stuff.


In years past, the MasterMind awards have helped out some pretty

impressive folks. The Borscht Film Festival used its winnings to submit

Upcoming Events

its films to festivals like Cannes and Sundance, essentially introducing

Borscht to the international film community. Jorge Rubiera took our

cash and gave us (and the rest of the world) Birdwatchers in

return. And before Roofless Records became the recipient of a Knight

Foundation grant, we gave the label a boost with award monies of our

own.

Just about any Miami-based, arts-minded person or organization can apply

for MasterMind award consideration: painters, sculptors, installation

artists, musicians, filmmakers, poets, performance artists and beyond.

But you can't sit around and wait for us to find you. To apply, send us

the following information:

To be considered, send us the below before January 20:

  • Your name

  • Contact info: phone, email, and home address
  • Short bio
  • Description of your work
  • Your Artwork

- emailed images

Email all of the above to

masterminds@miaminewtimes.com by January 20. Finalists will be announced
