Are You A MasterMind?

Categories: MasterMinds
"Miami's arts scene is really developing these days." It's a sentiment we've been hearing for so long that it's damn near a cliche. But that doesn't make it any less true. The creative types who call South Florida home have been transforming our city into a unique and fascinating community for arts lovers. And New Times wants to continue that trend.

Our MasterMind Awards gives grants to the best artists in Miami. We know you're out there. But if you want in on the fame and the glory (and, yes, the cash), you've gotta act fast.

In years past, the MasterMind awards have helped out some pretty impressive folks. The Borscht Film Festival used its winnings to submit its films to festivals like Cannes and Sundance, essentially introducing Borscht to the international film community. Jorge Rubiera took our cash and gave us (and the rest of the world) Birdwatchers in return. And before Roofless Records became the recipient of a Knight Foundation grant, we gave the label a boost with award monies of our own.

Just about any Miami-based, arts-minded person or organization can apply for MasterMind award consideration: painters, sculptors, installation artists, musicians, filmmakers, poets, performance artists and beyond. But you can't sit around and wait for us to find you. To apply, send us the following information:

To be considered, send us the below before January 20:
  • Your name
  • Contact info: phone, email, and home address
  • Short bio
  • Description of your work
  • Your Artwork

- via a link to a web site (preferred)
- emailed images

Email all of the above to by January 20. Finalists will be announced February 10, and winners will be announced at our annual art soiree, Artopia. Good luck!
