2013 Contest

 
 

It’s BACK! MCASD’s "25 and Under Art Contest" is ready for round two. Are you?

We asked you (all you folks under 25, that is) to create artwork inspired by the human eye, and you answered. Our contest is now closed, and we're thrilled to report we received more than 175 entries. 

Our esteemed panel of judges—ranging from artists, to arts writers, to last year's grand prize winner Lauren Millslagle—will select 25 finalists. We’ll then invite you to vote for your favorites on Facebook and in person at the showcase event on Thursday, May 16. We will select four winners in the following categories: People’s Choice (first place and honorable mention) and Curator’s Choice (first place and honorable mention). The People's Choice awards will be determined by the Facebook and in-person voting at the showcase event.

Prizes are as follows:

  • Curator’s Choice, first place: $500 gift certificate to Blick Art Materials and an MCASD Dual/Family membership.

  • Curator’s Choice, honorable mention: $100 gift certificate to Blick Art Materials and an MCASD e-membership.

  • People’s Choice, first place: $100 gift certificate to Blick Art Materials and an MCASD e-membership.

  • People’s Choice, honorable mention: $100 gift certificate to Blick Art Materials and an MCASD e-membership.

If you are one of the 25 finalists, you will be notified the week of May 6 and asked to deliver your artwork to MCASD Downtown for our showcase event on Thursday, May 16. After the showcase event, all twenty-five finalist entries will be displayed at Westfield Horton Plaza through August.

In the meantime, learn about last year’s contest and check out the winners.
