Myartspace, the online community for artists and photographers, is sponsoring a new juried art competition named "New York, New York 2007". The competition is open to all myartspace members. Membership to myartspace is free.

Fifty finalists will be selected from the contest entries. A juried panel will choose the finalists and the 4 ultimate winners. Selection will be based on:

  •     artistic merit

The New York, New York 2007 Competition allows our global community to send 4 very talented people to New York to show off their best work.
