'Real Art D.C.'!

Oh, I take it all back. The Washington Post does support a vibrant local art scene.


If they didn't, would they be "looking to discover the Washington Region's newest talents" with their "Real Art D.C." Art Contest? I didn't think so.

You can look, too! And if everyone clicks all the way through the paper's 1,265-pageview [and counting!] slideshow, they'll be able to hire another freelance gallery reviewer! Art Works!

Wow, the Terms and Conditions of the Real Art D.C. Promotion are awesome:

...Materials do not violate or infringe the rights of privacy, publicity, or any other rights, including but not limited to copyrights or trademarks, of any third party,...Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion to disqualify any...which Sponsor believes may be...offensive, harassing, inappropriate...to modify any material submitted...There are no prizes...16. By participating in this promotion, each entrant gives Sponsor permission to use his/her Entry Materials and other information provided to Sponsor in any manner or media in its sole discretion...20. Notwithstanding the above, The Washington Post is not licensed to publish, reproduce, use, transfer, and otherwise display your Entry Materials in book format.
Yes, let artists keep the book goldmine for themselves.

update: Meanwhile, the Post's Washington Area High School Photo Contest is offering the winner a $100 gift card.

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
