News: APS Annual Contests Open for Submissions

apswin2015Check out this year’s annual contests! If you haven’t seen the list of the 2015 annual contests and contest guidelines yet, click here.

In addition to traditional member contest sponsors, this year, we have two non-member corporate sponsors and one non-member sponsorship by an esteemed local visual artist. Most remarkably, we received a donation from a non-member patron of the arts who’s sponsored a contest that will result in a $300 first prize, $200 second prize, and $100 third prize. The prize total of $600 is higher than any prize total ever offered by the APS.

While the annual contests list and guidelines came out a little later this year than in years past, you still have plenty of time to get your submissions together. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2015.
