Description
Open to works of any media, any genre/style, any size... One work will be selected for the award, featured in the gallery, and published. Ten semi-finalist works will also be recognized and published. In 2015 we were excited to announce that our non-profit board of directors approved an increase in the annual Manifest Prize (ONE) award amount to $5,000. This underscores our organization's strong desire to reward, showcase, celebrate, and document the most exceptional artwork being made today, and to do this in a tasteful non-commercial public context. Further, it is to incentivize the creation of excellent work and to support individual artists in meaningful, career-impacting ways. Manifest's mission is centered on championing the importance of quality in visual art. This project is one aspect of the realization of that mission.
