Yep, you read that headline right. SF Weekly is giving out money, in the form of three $1,500 grants, to local artists. Not only could you win some moola to keep your projects going, but the top 10 submissions will be displayed at our Artopia party Feb. 16 at Public Works. Sounds like a sweet deal, right? Read on for details on how to enter.

Artists working in performing arts, visual arts, fashion/design, and film/video/media are eligible to enter the Masterminds program. Each of the top 10 artists will have one work displayed at Artopia.

Submissions can come in the form of slides, photographs, DVDs, CD-ROMs, flash drives, a press kit, or a website. But please note that your submissions will not be returned -- so send digital copies or photographs rather than originals. See here for more information.

The deadline for entry is January 21, 2011 -- no exceptions. Mail your submission to:

SF Weekly c/o Mollie McWilliams
185 Berry St. Suite 3800
San Francisco, CA 94107

or email them to Mollie [dot] McWilliams [at] SFWeekly [dot] com.

And good luck!

  • 24th Annual Autumn Moon Festival
    Crowds gathered September 6-7 for the 24th Annual Autumn Moon Festival in Chinatown. Visitors enjoyed arts, crafts, cultural exhibits, food and a dog fashion show. Photographs by Dhoryan Rizo.
  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
