Submit to MasterMind Today -- There's No Time to Lose!
For weeks, we've been telling you about the MasterMind awards. And for weeks, you've probably been telling yourself, "Sure, I'll apply -- right after I [insert excuse here]."
But this week, there's no time for excuses. The deadline to apply for one of our three MasterMind awards -- each worth $1,000 and recognition as one of Miami's greatest creative minds -- is Friday. That's five short days away. So procrastinate no longer and get to applying. Here's how.
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:
