CALLING ALL ARTISTS THE NEW YORK COFFEE FESTIVAL
The Coffee Art Project returns to New York City for a third year this October.
Artists at all levels can enter one piece of artwork that connects to ‘coffee’ and/or ‘coffee shop’ experience. There is no restriction on media used; sculpture, painting, installation, photography, and mixed media art works are all eligible and welcome, providing that they have a justifiable link to coffee.
Winning artwork: $1,500
Two other shortlisted runners-up: $500
The New York Coffee Festival Visitor Award: $250
The judging criteria will focus on four key factors: creativity, impact, relevance to the topic and spirit of humanity. All contestants will be notified by e-mail and winners posted on The Coffee Art Project website.
The Coffee Art Project supports Project Waterfall, which is committed to bringing clean water and sanitation to the communities that grow our coffee. All profits from the live shows will directly support clean drinking water projects in Rwanda in partnership with charity: water.
