I am sooooo saddened and disappointed that THE ARTIST SHOWCASE CONTEST IS ONLY OPEN TO THOSE 4 PARTICULAR STATES ! I was filled with so much hope as I filled out the application only to realize that…I am here in NEW JERSEY… And I’m trying to delete my application AND MY PHOTO OF MY WORK ! I AM VERY PROTECTIVE OF MY WORK AND I DON’T APPRECIATE PUTTING MY PICTURES OUT THERE IN A CONTEST I DON’T QUALIFY FOR !!


Hi Suzette, because we are partnering with UMOJA magazine to sponsor this event and they are headquartered in Madison, WI, we had to keep it a more regional based contest. We did not receive your entry so please don’t worry about us receiving a picture. Thank you.
