We wanna give you money! But time is running out!
As a penniless musician with a fridge full of condiments, you're always on the lookout for your next sugar daddy (or mama), so why not hook up with New Times? We're clean, intelligent, and we always keep a little extra loot in our underwear for special occasions.
Here's the deal: For the second year in a row, we've set aside $4,500 in genius grants, which we'll be doling out to independent Miami artists. Now aren't we the pervy benefactor you always wanted?
See the cut for MasterMind 2011 application instructions.
There are $1,500 awards available in three categories:
1. Visual (Painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.)
2. Narrative (Film, theater, poetry, and performance art)
3. Sound (Music and sound installations)
All applications should include the following five things:
-Contact info (phone, email, and home address)
-Description of your work
The deadline is January 7. Send your application by email to MasterMinds@MiamiNewTimes.com or standard mail:
Attn: MasterMind Awards Submission
4500 Biscayne Blvd., Ste. 200
Miami, FL 33137
On January 28, New Times will release a list of nine semi-finalists before finally naming our three MasterMind 2011 sugar babies on February 10 at annual arty party, Artopia.
Soon you'll be eating more than condiments, kids.
