Manhattan Perceived Art Competition and Auction
The Manhattan Perceived art competition aims to showcase artistic works that capture the perceptions of various neighborhoods throughout Manhattan that have been impacted by or are recovering from Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Acceptable artwork for submission in the Manhattan Perceived Project include both paintings and photography which depict the resilience of New York City.
A panel of expert judges will select six winning entries, one Grand Prize winner and five runners-up. Submissions will be judged based on criteria including creativity, quality, genuineness of the content, and how well the artwork captures the resilient spirit of neighborhoods in New York City affected by Hurricane Sandy.
Winning entries will be entered into an auction to be held on February 15, 2013.
Artwork selected by the panel of judges will be auctioned at the Manhattan Perceived Event at the UN Headquarters. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the American Red Cross to support Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Photography and paintings are acceptable but must be submitted in digital format (JPEG) via the website to ensure the artist retains possession of the original art piece until the winners have been determined. Multiple entries per entrant are acceptable.
The caption must be complete and accurate, sufficient to convey the circumstances in which the painting was made or photograph was taken. Disguising or misrepresenting the origin of your content is cause for disqualification.
