As this year ends, we're getting ready for the ninth annual Houston Press MasterMind Awards, to be handed out at the end of January 2017.
So, as always, we need your help in selecting three recipients who will be recognized at next year's Artopia event, a celebration of the arts scheduled for Saturday, January 28, 2017, at Winter Street Studios, 2101 Winter.
Remember, this is not a lifetime achievement award or a popularity contest, but recognition of what people are doing now to make Houston a better place artistically and in terms of its culture. Awards in the past have gone to visual artists, dancers, musicians, filmmakers and photographers, to name just a few.
Winners receive a plaque and a $2,000 no-strings-attached check.
And if you'd like to attend Artopia, visit our presale website. Attendees must be 21 years or older.
Send your nominations for the MasterMind Awards to firstname.lastname@example.org. Explain briefly why you think an individual or group deserves the award. And feel free to include links to any examples of their work. Deadline for nominations is December 30, 2016. A panel of judges will make the final selection.
