With the help of a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and donations kindly received from readers, Artlurker, an online Miami based contemporary art newsletter, is proud to announce the Miami Writers Prize, a new annual prize aimed squarely at promoting and encouraging residents of Miami who write critically about art.
Judged by a panel of distinguished local professionals, this year’s prize is held in association with Locust Projects, a leading non-profit art space located in Miami’s Design District that will host an intimate award giving soiree on May 20th, 2010.
Hopefuls may submit one original review of a recent art related event. The winning entrant, in addition to having their text published, will be paid an honorary stipend of $400 dollars in return for a month’s worth of guest blogging (eight posts) on Artlurker.
Closing date for submissions is May 4th, 2010.
