Herb Williams (http://www.herbwilliamsart.com), winner of the Next Star Artist competition, has been receiving plenty of fantastic reviews of his work from some major publications some of which I have provided links to below.

Due to the overwhelming number of entries (way more than I expected) that I received for the Next Star Artist competition, there will be a delay with the announcement of the ten finalists. Instead of the ten finalists being announced on the 30th of May the ten finalists will now be announced on the 8th of June.

Changes to Next Star Artist Judging Finalised

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 nextstarartist@gmail.com and entry is free.

Changes to Next Star Artist Competition

Changes to Next Star Artist Competition

Hi all,

I hope that everyone is well.  As the Next Star Artist competition is an entirely new concept there were bound to be some areas that needed tweaking.  The first change is the removal of the condition of entry that the winner of the competition must donate an artwork to the artmarketblog.com art collection.  For those people out there that were opposed to the winner being required to donate an artwork, (even though there is no entry fee and I am doing this purely for artists) the winner DOES NOT have to donate an artwork now.
I am also proposing a change to the judging structure whereby the winner will be chosen from the ten finalists by a group of judges (30 or so) as opposed to a public vote.  Each of the judges would be sent the list of finalists and would then make their choice with the winner being the artist who receives the most votes.  If anyone opposed this change to the judging structure or has another suggestion please let me know.
