not sure if any of you have heard of this yet, but it's been a big deal in my town, since it's being held where i live.
it's the largest art prize competition in the world with almost $500,000 worth of prizes available and is an international competition open to all mediums.
it has a unique set up, which might keep some from entering, but might interest some on this site.
the unique part is that it will be voted on by the public and each artist must host their piece in a "venue" located in Grand Rapids, MI. each artist must be there to set up and tear down though, which might keep some from entering in my opinion.
anyway, thought i'd throw it out there for any interested...
