myartspace.com, the premier online venue for contemporary art, has announced some revisions to its "myartscholarship" program launched earlier this year. Due to a large number of requests from educational institutions to extend the deadline, myartspace.com has decided to move the final deadline for entry and submission to December 16, 2008. The contest will now contain an "early registration" date of November 21, 2008. Students who have registered for the scholarship competition before early registration are granted a free 3-month trial subscription to premium services for artists, a paid service which supports a number of powerful additional capabilities not found in the standard subscription to myartspace. Early registrants will also be eligible to win one of two iPhones that will be given out on November 21, 2008.
Catherine McCormack-Skiba, founder and CEO of myartspace, noted, "The student artist remains a key source of creative energy for our online community. A large number of art programs have asked us to extend the deadline to give them a bit more time to get the word out about the scholarship program to their students. We want to be as inclusive as possible, and decided we could push out the deadline date while also being able to provide the scholarships before the end of the year to the winners."
