Celebrating Art & Writing on Youtube

February 29, 2008

Welcome to the First Real Youtube Art & Writing Contest

From the Press Release:
There remains no category on YouTube for art and literature. Which isn’t to say writers and artists aren’t taking advantage of the site. One artist, who goes by the handle ValsArtDiary, records her weekly process of making a painting, puts the video on YouTube, and within hours of posting has bids for her work Ebay. Take that Picasso!

To prove to the YouTube brain trust that there is a demand for good writing and fine art, Jaffe is launching a literature-and-arts contest dubbed “TubeArts”. Sponsors Carmun.com, a social networking site geared to help students write academic papers, and FracturedAtlas.org, a non-profit that helps provide artists with important services like healthcare, are each contributing $600 in prize money. Additionally, Fracture Atlas has offered all artists who participate in the contest a free one-year membership to their site.

The contest video can be seen at youtube.com/jackdanyells , Jaffe’s YouTube channel. And the contest judges are all YouTubers with outstanding credentials.
