Submit to MasterMind: A New Year's Resolution That Might Actually Pay Off

The new year is upon us, with all the hopes and dreams that accompany it. Maybe you've resolved to lose weight. Maybe you've resolved finally stop drinking so damn much. Here at Cultist, we support neither of those goals. But there is one resolution we can help out with: helping you make more and better art in 2012.


Our MasterMind Awards gives grants to the best artists in Miami. But if you want to be considered, you've gotta let us know who you are. And you've gotta do it soon.


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

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

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

- via a link to a web site (preferred)

- emailed images


Email all of the above to

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

February 10, and winners will be announced at our annual art soiree, Artopia. Good luck!
