NEW YORK – Calling all artists! The Coffee Art Project will return to New York City for a fourth year this October. Registration is now open and will close this Friday, August 31, 2018. The final deadline for the submission of artwork is  September 28, 2018. Artists can now register here.

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 artworks are all eligible and welcome, providing that they have a justifiable link to coffee.

The top 30-40 pieces will be exhibited and judged at The New York Coffee Festival (October 12-14, 2018). A few exhibited pieces will also be selected to be displayed at The Los Angeles Coffee Festival, to be held November 9-11, 2018. All works will be safely transported there and back, pending sale of any work at either festival.

The Coffee Art Project provides an opportunity for talented artists to gain high profile exposure and showcase their work to a vast new audience, while raising valuable funds to support Project Waterfall.

PRIZES:

First Prize: $1,500
First Runner Up: $500
Second Runner Up: $500
Visitor’s 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 CAUSE:

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 will directly support clean drinking water projects in Rwanda in partnership with charity: water.
