I received word about this contest in my inbox today and felt that with the way the job market has been lately, most people would probably welcome the opportunity to win a contest that offers a hefty cash prize.

“The Metropolis Art Grand Prize: The winner will receive US $20,000, a dedicated artist channel on Babelgum Metropolis and will have his/her video screened on Times Square monitors.

The Best Street Art Video: The winner will receive US $5,000 and have his/her video screened on Times Square monitors. The Best Street Art Video will be selected by juror Cedar Lewisohn, curator of the 2008 Street Art exhibition at the Tate Modern gallery in London.

The Audience Award: The winner will receive US $5,000 and have his/her video screened on Times Square monitors. The Babelgum audience will vote for this award online and on mobile.

The Times Square Special Screening Awards: six runners-up (two from each prize category) will also have their videos screened on Times Square monitors.

Further information about submission specifications and regulations, including deadlines to submit, screen and vote, are available on the Babelgum website.”

20K sounds alright doesn’t it? Good luck.

I woke up this morning to find an email about this year’s Cut and Paste competition waiting for me. It sounds like it could be really exciting and something worth participating in to end up in NY surrounded by serious talent.

Here is the skinny from my inbox:
· This year, Cut&Paste is introducing the first-ever live 3D design and motion design contests

· The 2009 tour will begin in North America in March (Europe and Asia will follow)

· The Global Championships—which will feature a winner from each of the 16 participating cities—will take place in New York City in June 2009

· Grand Prize: One Grand Prize winner from each category in each city (48 in total) will receive an expenses-paid trip to New York City for the Global Championships. For a complete list of prizes, visit: www.cutandpaste.com/tours/program/formats/.
