I was one of 369 artists in Georgia who applied for a unique opportunity - the Hudgens Prize. Well I've been holding my breath, and hoping, for the last couple of months...but did not get selected. Oh well! These things happen. But I am inspired by the group of artists they have chosen, each of whom seems to have a distinct voice and opinion. (Although, I was certain they said 10 artists would be selected, only 5 were chosen). There work had to clearly speak to the jurors, for it was only judged by images - there was no written portion of the application (which I found very strange for such a large prize of $50,000)
But I encourage you to check out their work! Best of luck to each of you.
