Great prizes for our video contest

Three generous companies have stepped forward to support our "Plein Air Persistence" video contest.

Jack Richeson and Company is donating gift certificates for Richeson products worth $250 and $150 for first and second prizes.

Liliedahl video productions is offering three gift certificates worth $250 from their collection of 100+ art instruction videos.

Plein Air Magazine will do a story about the contest, and they'll talk it up in their weekly newsletter Plein Air Today. They will cover it on and show the winning entries at the Plein air convention in front of an audience of 800+ plein air artists from around the world next April in Monterey.

That's all in addition to my originally-announced prize of signed and remarqued books.

This is a great opportunity to get your work seen by a lot of people worldwide. And it's totally free to enter. You just need to come up with one minute of video awesomeness expressing the theme of Persistence in plein air painting or drawing. It can be serious or funny, a true story or a tall tale, live action or animation. It's just a minute long, but a minute is enough to present a clear idea or a strong story with definite characters. 

If you're not experienced with making short films, team up with someone who is. Art students might want to collaborate with film majors in their school. And I'll bet every established painter has a friend or family member who does videography for a serious hobby. 

Deadline is October 22 and there are three categories: Animation, Live Action, and a Youth category for entrants who are 17 years old or younger. Here is complete information about the contest.
