Make art in metro Detroit? You could win a MI Great Artist cash prize

If you live, work, or go to school in one of eight counties in southeast Michigan (Genesee, Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Shiawassee, St. Clair or Wayne) and make visual art, you are eligible for the MI Great Artist competition and a share of the $16,000 in prize money that will be awarded to one winner and four finalists.
A project of the Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson's office, MI Great Artist is an online competition for visual artists, 18 years and older, with a relatively low barrier of entry. Applicants are required complete an entry form and submit five digital samples of original artworks. Those materials will then be posted to the MI Great Artist website for two weeks and the members of the public will be allowed to vote for their favorite entries once each day from October 21 through October 30, 2015. Twenty semi-finalists will be selected from the top public votes.  A five-member jury of arts professionals will then select five finalists.
Applicants have until noon on Wednesday, Oct. 7, to submit an application. To learn more about the contest, visit https://www.migreatartist.com.
