The first place juried art show winner receives $1,000 in prize money, as chosen by a qualified committee of arts professionals. There is also a People's Choice Award, a $500 cash prize. And all artists are included in the official show catalogue, available online and as a hard copy at the show.
How to apply: Send us examples of your work (a web link or no more than seven photos), a short bio along with a C.V./resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org Please be aware that if you are accepted, one of the images you submit will be shown in the catalogue.
