Changes to Next Star Artist Judging Finalised
The huge number of positive responses that I received that are in favour of the final judging structure being changed from a public vote to the winner being decided by a panel of judges has given me more than enough reason to officially change the structure. To prevent any lobbying the identities of the judges will not be revealed until after the winner has been announced but I can tell you that they will include some very well known curators and art critics. With just over two weeks to go until entries close the excitement is really starting to build as entries continue to come in thick and fast. I am currently preparing a series of promotional opportunities for the winner of the competition which I am sure will be of great benefit to who ever is lucky enough to be the recipient of this great prize.
Entries close on the 23rd of May so if you are planning on entering the competition you had better start preparing your entry. Entry details can be found at http://www.nextstarartist.com but basically what you need to do is send in your bio, a brief artist’s statement and three pics of your work to email@example.com and entry is free.
