Prepare Yourself For Clash Of The Artists 2009!

Now in it's third year, Clash of the Artists 2009 will once again raise the standard of artist competitions across the world! At Art For Progress, we inspire exceptional international talent to get involved and support art education while having the opportunity to win fantastic prizes geared for the career artist. Here's your opportunity to show the art world, peers, and fans your best work. The world will decide who makes it to the finals for the BIG EVENT in New York City in March 2009.

The annual competition encompasses genres of visual art, film, fashion, live music, DJ's, and the exciting open category, "creative". The interactive judging process allows the on-line community to view short films, listen to music, and see the work of artists and designers from Australia to New York. Over a five-week voting period, three finalists will be chosen in each category. Through Clash of the Artists we have awarded winning artists some very exciting prizes.

Below are some examples of past prizes: Dubspot Full Music Production Package, NY Fashion Week Shows, Meetings with Magnum P.R. and People's Revolution for Musicians and Fashion Designers, DJ performances at Miami's Winter Music Conference, Abel Cine Tech Full Film Production Packages, Sony Music + Film Production Software, Apple's Final Cut Pro Software, Music + DJ equipment from Audio Technica, AFP Memberships, Career Building Workshops from MShop NYC, Gift Certificates, and this year CASH!! Our prize packages will be even bigger this year.

Get on board! Submit your work and get exposure for your talent while supporting art education. It's your time to shine and we're here to make it happen.

You can submit your work at beginning November 17th or you can mail in your submissions to Art For Progress, 151 1st Avenue, Suite 26, New York, NY 10003. We'll be accepting submissions through January 9th 2009. Than it all goes live on January 19 when everyone gets to experience the best in art, music, fashion and film from across the globe. Votes will be tallied through February 28th. Did we mention our new super-secure voting process?

Last year, 150 artists were featured, over 15,000 people voted on-line, and over 300 people attended the finals event!

All of the proceeds from Clash of the Artists 2009 will support AFP's growing Art & Humanities Education Program. Art for Progress is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization.
