You Be the Judge

Hi all,

I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you more about the new "You Be the Judge" Art Contest 2013, which is an online art contest dedicated to helping educate, inspire, and equip artists by giving them the opportunity to showcase their work and a chance to win prizes that could greatly help them in reaching their own artistic goals. As an added bonus, viewers of the contest have the opportunity to vote for their favorite paintings throughout the duration of the contest, ultimately deciding who the Grand Prize winner will be.

With the help of several fantastic sponsors, this year's Grand Prize package is full of items and opportunities worth over $10,000! The best part of all, the contest is FREE to enter and is open to artists worldwide.

The winner of this year's contest will have the unique opportunity to experience art firsthand at a workshop of their choice (value up to $600) from the Scottsdale Artists' School in Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as having their artwork featured in a half page ad in Southwest Art Magazine!

Visit the contest website for more information about the contest and to find out how you can enter. And if you have any questions, let me know. All the best!
