During ArtPrize, there will be two ways you can vote for my work: Online or by text message.
To vote online:
Just can search your name or the name of your work and vote right on your profile.
To vote by text message:
Each artist will have a 5 digit code that attendees can type into the body of a text message to either vote up or vote down your work (read more about voting up and down below).
Attendees will send all votes to 878787
My voting codes to include in the message:
vote25571 (vote up)
vote25570 (vote down)
Note that my 5 digit code must have the word “vote” in front of it when it is sent in the text message. Mark these codes down!
Why the up vote and down vote?
During Week 1, you can vote an artist up or down. ArtPrize designed voting this way knowing that an artist with the most votes up may be the most popular, but the artist with the most votes up AND down may be the most talked about, thought about and controversial work in the event.
ArtPrize see both the popular and controversial works as important to the “conversations” generated around ArtPrize.
See instructions for all the different ways to vote.
If you’re into the whole social networking scene – you might already be a member of Facebook. If not – I can honestly say it’s a lot of fun, and a very useful communications tool.
Not only have I re-connected with a host of school friends (from elementary years through high school), but also former co-workers, folks from my Army Reserve years, family members and even current clients with whom I interact and work on projects with right in “real time”.
So… if you do happen to use Facebook – perhaps you can help a girl out?
ArtPrize has a group page on Facebook. They are currently taking suggestions for their Artist Chat series, and I’d love the chance to try that. If you can – please offer a nomination for me for an upcoming Chat.
No female artists have been featured yet – so I’d like to see us gals represented too! Nominations are being taken through Monday, August 3rd – 5 pm EST.
