Okay, so I have the big things checked off of the to do list for Eyes Got It! 2011.
- Apply to EAST 2011 ✓
- Find judges ✓
- Find venue ✓
- Find grand prize ✓
But I still need to find prizes for finalists and semi-finalists.
I want the prizes to be valuable to artists as this competition is designed for them. Last year I was able to get some gift cards to Jerry’s Artarama and Domy Books. Holland Photo also chipped in a gift certificate for some photo services.
This year, I want to up the ante a bit. My San Marcosian friends from Soda Tooth beat me to the punch by offering a website and photo documentation for their competition Expose The Arts. I think I’ll try securing those prizes too, but I am open to more suggestions… What do artists want/need?
Let me know in the comments.
And another thing you can help me with: I need a couple of intern/assistant/helper/collaborator-type folks for this project. I fired the guy who made such a mess of last year’s event (stupid Jaime!) and I want to make sure there are enough hands on deck this time around.
I’m looking to work with 1 0r 2 folks:
- an admin-type for helping with the press releases, securing prizes, headcount of the event, etc.
- an A/V-type for setting up a slideshow, documenting via photo & video, editing a short promo, etc.
If you or someone you know is interested in working with me send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
No experience necessary, but it would be nice if you sent me some sort of qualifications for me to look over. Resume? CV? A nice letter of recommendation?
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
