HOW IS THIS EVENT DIFFERENT FROM A TRADITIONAL ART CONTEST?
We want to create an enjoyable platform where one can express their creativity to the max and with a memorable experience for each attending artist. To do this we are maximizing out selected artists, minimizing requirements, and encouraging all selected artists to bring friends and family along for the entire event (the art viewing included). This is also the reason the awards are all the same amount and announced at the end of the event. We want to focus on the idea that the award is an encouragement to continue your practice.
WHICH MEDIA FORMS ARE ACCEPTED?
Everyone can be hungry. And art takes many forms. We welcome 2D, 3D, and performative works including, but not limited to: painting, illustration, sculpture, photography, digital, mixed media, product designs, garments, textiles, music and performing arts. As long as the work is safe, non-destructive, and applies to the terms and conditions we are open to the format.
