Arts Festival looking for that one special fan

The 51st Annual Coconut Grove Arts Festival recently announced its an online contest for one special Arts Festival fan to participate in its upcoming advertising campaign. The contest will be held online from Tuesday  Thursday, October 31 at midnight, and is open to fans that best identify with the campaign’s theme: “All for Art. Art for All."

Fans are invited to creatively express what “All for Art. Art for All” means to them in in 150 words or less, by telling a story related to the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. Regardless of artistic background, the event is looking for any fan that has a passion for the arts. (Applicants must be 21 years or older.) 

Once all submissions are received, five finalists will be selected to proceed to the final round. During a four-day voting period open from Monday, November 4 through Thursday, November 7, the organization’s social media followers will determine a winner by popular vote. The winner must be available for photos on Tuesday, November 12. 

In addition to starring in the Arts Festival’s upcoming 2014 advertising campaign, the winner will also be rewarded two All-Access Weekend Passes and a swag bag complete with apparel and poster. 

The “All for Art. Art for All” Coconut Grove Arts Festival advertising campaign will boast why the Arts Festival’s dedication to arts inclusion of all disciplines brings together some of the greatest art enthusiasts in South Florida. It will be featured locally on NBC6, Telemundo51 and Comcast, while print ads will be seen in the Coconut Grove Grapevine, The Miami Herald, Miami New Times and other widely distributed publications.

Fans interested in participating can send submissions to Katherine@cgaf.com. Each entry must be accompanied by a photo of the applicant. 

The Coconut Grove Arts Festival will be held February 15-17, 2014 and is produced by the non-profit Coconut Grove Arts and Historical Association. Proceeds help fund year-round arts programs. The association also maintains the Coconut Grove Arts Festival Gallery and presents special exhibitions throughout the year from its location at the Shoppes at Mayfair.
