Were you thinking about applying for our annual MasterMind award but maybe forgot? Maybe you were swept up by the sublime joy of Christmas, temporarily impaired by rolling your eyes at your drunk uncle, or maybe you are the drunk uncle. It's okay, we understand.
Keeping with the holiday spirit, Miami New Times has moved the application deadline back to Monday, January 19. If you've already submitted an application (thanks!) then there's no need to submit again.
Three winners will receive a grant worth $1,000 at the New Times' annual celebration, Artopia. Ten finalist, including the three winners, will be featured in an issue of our paper. MasterMind finalist will also receive exhibition space at Artopia, giving them the opportunity to present their work in a vibrant public forum.
To be considered please submit the following:
- Your name
- Your contact information: phone, email, and home address
- A short bio
- A description of your work
- Examples of your artwork, either via link to a website or in emailed images
- Your vision for your Artopia showcase, should you become a finalist
Email all of the information above to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is January 19.
We look forward to reading your submissions!
