Should ArtPrize’s First Round Last Longer?

One of the biggest complaints every year at ArtPrize is that there isn't enough time to see the entries before the first round is over.  People want to see more art.  This is a great problem to have, but it is still a problem.

There's no doubt that fans of ArtPrize would love the opportunity to have more time to view entries before the finalists are selected.  But adding another week or weekend to ArtPrize could have consequences.

What Does ‘The Best Of ArtPrize’ Mean?

ArtPrize forces us to ask many questions.  What is art?  What deserves a vote to win ArtPrize?

Attempting to answer those questions is part of what makes ArtPrize so much fun.  Art is so many things.  Sometimes the medium speaks for itself.  Sometimes the works inspires.  Sometimes the work angers.  Whatever the reaction, all good art has one thing in common, it creates an emotion in those who view it.

Former ArtPrize Finalists Return In 2011

With 1,582 entries at ArtPrize 2011, separating yourself from the crowd is one of the keys to success.  One way to get ahead of the pack is to generate a large fanbase before the competition even begins.  Artists who have finished as ArtPrize finalists in the past two years will enter this year's competition at an advantage over most first-time artists.

It would not be surprising to see any and all of the former finalists listed among the top vote getters in the first few days, but staying there and getting to the top ten will take more than just name recognition.
