New Times Broward-Palm Beach is excited to announce our newly-established Amplitude Academy of Musical Arts MasterMind awards! We're giving away $1,000 to four local artists. Fashion designers, filmmakers, visual artists, performance artists, tattoo artists, and more are invited to apply. Alternately, individuals can nominate an artist whose work they admire.

Are you a longtime fixture in the local art scene? Show us why. An obscure starving artist? Bring it on. Not sure if that stiltwalking dance you invented in your bedroom qualifies as "performance art"? Hey, try us. Applicants must work, reside, or attend school in Broward or Palm Beach counties.

Winners will be chosen by a panel of experts (museum representatives, gallery owners, art critics, etc) and announced on November 14, when New Times Broward-Palm Beach celebrates local innovators with our first annual Artopia event -- an eye-popping gala and sensory experience replete with drinks, music, DJs, art, food, and fashion at Fort Lauderdale nightclub Exit 66. Click here for more information on the event.

Enter either via snail mail or e-mail -- whichever best showcases the applicant's work.

To apply, please include a statement describing the artist and

the work. Also include contact information -- phone number, e-mail

address, home address. The deadline is 5 p.m. October 28.
