Next Star Artist Competition Entry Closes May 23
With only two days to go until entries for the Next Star Artist competition (http://www.nextstarartist.com) close there has been a steady flow of last minute entries to add to the 160+ entries that have already been received. I am really looking forward to working with the winner and helping the winner to stand out from the crowd in a market where it is easy for even the best of artists to go unnoticed. I have spent lots of time deciding on how best to assist the winner with their career and have drawn upon my past successes with artist promotion to create a plan of campaign. My plan is based on the long term progression and development as opposed to short term hype with a view to assisting the winner in a way that ensures long term prosperity and success.
Although there are plenty of opportunities available for artists who wish to progress their careers it is often the case that an artist will not know that these opportunities exist or how to best utilise them to their advantage. I have spent significant amounts of time identifying these opportunities and will reveal the list to the winner and advise the winner on how best to use the opportunities that I have identified as the most beneficial.
If you would like to enter the competition all you need to do is send three images of your work, a brief bio and an artists statement to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details can be found at http://www.nextstarartist.com
