Are you a local artist, filmmaker, musician or dancer? Do you have a unique perspective or challenging project that you think deserves recognition? Then you should apply for New Times' MasterMind Award. Every year we offer monetary grants and well-deserved exposure to creatives across Miami.
Last year, New Times awarded filmmaker Julian Yuri Rodriguez, visual artist Kevin Arrow, and musician Otto Von Schirach grants. Previous MasterMind finalists include avant-garde choreographer Rosie Herrera and Borscht Film Festival co-founder Andrew Hevia.
If you'd like to join the well-respected MasterMind ranks, then you need to apply. Three winners will receive a grant worth $1,000 at the New Times' annual celebration of culture in the Magic City. Artopia will take place February 26, 2015 at the lovely Coral Gables Museum. Ten finalist, including the three winners, will be featured in an issue of our paper. But wait, there's more!
