Really Need your help on this one guys. Nationwide competition that can help others.
So, It has been a while since I posted anything. I have been super busy with a new project that kinda jumped on me at the VERY last second. On top of that my two classes I am taking at school are very taxing on my time because we don’t actually learn anything in class. We go over about 15% of a lesson in class and aren’t allowed to do anything else in the mean time then are forced to do tutorials out of POORLY written books as homework… Just URGGG…
But something HUGE has come up and I need all of the support I can get.
Anyways, Last year 2013 creators from around the world gathered in downtown Jacksonville Florida for the first crowd funding festival. The owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars even donated $1,000,000 to the cause. This event was called ONE SPARK. Basically what it is, is if somebody has an idea or a huge project that they want to do then they showcase it people can donate money if they want and companies will invest if its a project creating a huge buzz in community. Here is the official description
"For five days in April, Creators from all over the world will light up downtown with projects in art, innovation, music, science and technology.
They’ll showcase their best ideas for a chance to access $310,000 in crowdfunds and cash awards, 3.25 million dollars in capital investments and direct contributions from more than 150,000 attendees and backers around the globe.”
So, yeah last year I had 3 people approach me and tell me that NOBODY entered for digital art last year O__O and that I could have actually of stood a chance out there so this year I’m entering!
and here is how you can help.
Why? You may ask… well Matchmaking (aka INVITES TO COMPETE this year) started yesterday. Venues (the people who choose and host your projects) are looking through the creator pages and FACEBOOK pages to see if its a project the community is interested in and cares about. In other words it can influence which projects compete and which ones don’t.
So please support my page. I have alot of people telling me to not let my talent go to waste and that I am going to do big things in the future but the fact of the matter is. I can’t do it alone. Nobody just gets noticed by themselves. I used to try to do everything my self and everyone always told me that my pride would be my downfall. Well, now I am humbling myself and ASKING FOR HELP. So, for everyone who has ever said “well I’ll always be here” “I’ll always support you” “oh your art is so good” etc. BE HERE FOR ME NOW. Please Please Please support my project. I just want to make everyone who seen a future in me proud and show them that I was worth the time that they invested into me.
Please share that page with your friends or tell them about it or try to reach out to as many people (who would care about this type of stuff) as you can because my project is trying save talent and create jobs for other artist here in Jax (or people that I knew from Jax) as well.
Thank You for your time.
This can be for a really great cause to get more artists some work! PLEASE SUPPORT!
