Digital Art Contest for Seattle-based Creators!

Motion Media announces its first digital art contest launching March 18th, ending June 11th. We are looking for artists to feature in our new gallery space on Pioneer Square in Seattle. Our gallery space is a registered Art Walk stop. We want to feature the work of Seattle’s premiere digital artist on July 2nd (the first Thursday in July). Your work will hang in our space for the month of July – and to kick off the event, we will host a happy hour the evening of the Art Walk. If we choose to show you on July 2nd, we will print work selected for the show and frame those pieces as needed on our dime. That stuff is expensive and time consuming!

If you are interested in entering the contest, please send a selection of 5 pieces, plus your resume and a short bio blurb to ali@motionmedia.com. We accept 2D, 3D, video, and more. For extra consideration, follow us on twitter (motionmediallc) and facebook (Motion Meda, LLC) and tweet/post a status about why you deserve to win the contest. In your status, @ us, and include the hashtag #MMGallery. The contest ends June 11th! We will notify you of the winner on this date.

Thanks for participating!

*Please submit work at the following resolution: 9000×6000 @300dpi for 30×20 inches.
