On Oct. 8, 2014, we concluded our well-received #acchfocus Instagram contest. The contest spanned over 52 weeks, starting Sept., 01, 2013, and generated 1,347 hashtags (#acchfocus non unique entries). We would like to thank all participants who submitted entries!
We are pleased to announce that the winner of this year-long contest is Autumn Casey, an American artist, born in Dallas Texas, who currently lives and works in Miami. Casey will be awarded a solo show in the Center’s Project room during the All Media Juried Biennial in September, 2015! All 52 images of the year’s winners will be displayed in a small format print in the Center’s new artist showcase, The Landing, concurrent with the 2015 Biennial.
About the contest
The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood is pleased to announce an exciting
opportunity to win a solo exhibition in our Focus South Florida: project room gallery. Artists from within the state of Florida are invited to submit Instagram shots of their work (in any medium) every week of the year beginning September 1, 2013. Each week, a winning artist will be selected by the Center’s Curator of Exhibitions and staff. That week’s Instagram selected will be prominently featured on the Center’s website, for one week and then be included in an online gallery of all winners thus far.
October 8, 2014, one lucky Instagrammer will be awarded a solo show in the Center’s project room during the 2015 All Media Juried Biennial! Artists are allowed to submit one image per week for an unlimited number of times until they win. Once named as a weekly winner, the artist will be in the running for the solo exhibition award and will not be eligible as a weekly winner for a second time.
Works depicted in the Instagram can be in any media (photography, painting, drawing, digital media, sculpture, installation, video etc.)…and should be representative of the type of work the winning artist plans to show if awarded this unique opportunity. All 52 images of the year’s winners will be displayed in a small format print in the Center’s new artist showcase The Landing, concurrent with the 2015 Biennial!
