The HEAVYWEIGHT ARTIST contest
ARE YOU A HEAVYWEIGHT ARTIST?
Public Works Department and Sticker Robot in association with 14BOLT present the HEAVYWEIGHT ARTIST contest. From March 1 thru March 31, 2010. This motley crew of graffiti, street art and sticker enthusiasts have teamed up to bring one lucky winner the opportunity to shine like a heavy weight.
WANT TO KNOW THE DEAL?
From our flickr group (HeavyWeightArtist) of submissions, one lucky artist with the winning entry will receive a licensing agreement from Public Works Department (with a $500 advance) and have the winning entry screened on t-shirts and hoodies. In addition, the winner will receive 1000 heavyweight vinyl stickers of the winning entry printed by non other than Sticker Robot. But that’s not all folks, the lucky artist will also be given the opportunity to submit artwork for an exhibition to be held in NYC. The exhibition will celebrate the launch of PWD’s first event and street-wear line. This group show will be composed of a handful of selected and celebrated artists.
DO YOU WANT IN?
Well, here is your opportunity to shine like a heavyweight! The rules are simple. The work must be ORIGINAL and free of any copyright infringements (no celebrities please). We also ask that the submitted art adhere to a maximum of 4 colours. We are looking for your signature work, artwork that will translate in the screening process and onto apparel, so do your homework before submitting. No theme, just your best work. The contest will run from March 1 thru March 31, 2010. Submitted artwork will be evaluated by a distinguished panel of judges—Zoltron, 14BOLT and Billi Kid.
