Enter to Win! Are you the next MI Great Artist?

If you’re an artist in Southeast Michigan, don’t miss this opportunity to showcase your work in a gallery and earn prize money for doing something you love. Whether your medium is painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, or print-making, this is your chance to take your artistic talent to the next level.

Beginning Wednesday, August 1st at noon, artists may enter their works in the 2018 MI Great Artist competition, where cash and prizes total more than $16,000. Entries may be submitted to MIGreatArtist.com from now until noon on August 17th.

“We have a wealth of superbly talented artists who enter the competition each year,” Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said. “We’ve added a “People’s Choice” award this year to reward the artist who makes the biggest impact on the public. I encourage those talented individuals to join us as we begin the search for the next MI Great Artist winner.”
