MasterMinds -- Deadline Approacheth

Deadline is fast coming up to apply to win one of three

Houston Press

MasterMinds grant, a cool $2K prize to any local gifted artist, entrepreneur or innovator.

Hurricane Ike messed with us a little, so the original deadline was moved back. But the new one, October 30, is nigh.

Here's how editor Margaret Downing describes what we're looking for:

Our goal is to honor current, cutting-edge work being done right now, right here. This is not a lifetime-achievement award, nor is it a popularity contest, and nominees need not submit proposals outlining how they'd use the money. Instead, a committee of Houston Press representatives will evaluate the potential honorees in each field, and then pick winners whose cultural and creative contributions are helping to redesign -- and redefine -- where we live.

The awards will be given out early next year, date TBD.
