Artists and Performers: Win a Grant in SF Weekly's Masterminds Contest

Update: Deadline extended!

It's that time of year again: Not ski season (sadly!) but Masterminds, an annual competition held by SF Weekly to give leading local artists, designers, filmmakers, and performers cash grants.

Yes, you read that right: We're giving away good money to good local artists. (Emerging artists! That means, you aren't getting rich at it ... yet!) But to win, you have to enter by Jan. 23 noon on Friday, January 27.

Masterminds grants will be awarded in the following categories: Visual art, fashion/design, performing arts, and film/video/media. The exact size of the 2012 grants haven't been determined yet, but last year we gave out three grants at $1,500 each. Hit the jump for this year's details.

To enter the Masterminds contest, submit a cover letter, full contact information (name, address, phone, and email), slides/DVD/CD, a press kit, and/or website where works can be viewed. Samples of works will NOT be returned. Send all materials to SF Weekly c/o Mollie McWilliams 55 Francisco St., Ste. 710, S.F., CA, 94133 or

The chief danger in life is sometimes we take to many precautions. So live a little. If you stand in one spot you will not go anywhere.
