This morning's just filled with good news. First of all, the world didn't end. Secondly, you're likely looking at four whole days off when you clock out of work today. And lastly, but perhaps most exciting, it's Mastermind Awards season again.
New Times' Mastermind Awards seeks to give back to Miami's cultural community in the form of city-wide recognition and some sweet, sweet cash. Last year, New Times' editors and experts from the 305's cultural community selected three winners from among nearly 150 hopefuls: experimental arts collective The End/SPRING BREAK; Internet-obsessed artist and filmmaker Jillian Mayer; and DIY punk label Drugged Conscience Records.
This year, we're continuing the search for the best artists, musicians, filmmakers, and other culture producers in the Magic City. Mastermind grants of $1,000 will be given to this year's winners at Artopia, New Times' annual arts soiree, on Feb. 28. But to be considered, you have to let us know who you are. Here's how to apply.
To be considered, send us the below before January 17:
