2012 Art Prize Rule Changes!

The talent pool for next year's Art Prize competition in Grand Rapids will shrink by the top ten winners selected this year.
That makes a ton of sense since the idea is to give all artists a fair shot at winning some prize money and recognition in the community for his or her accomplishment.  If the same people win every year then the competition will lose its appeal and possibly intimidate some up and coming artists from ever applying.
