Left To Your One Device Contest from the Philadelphia Art Alliance

Here is what looks like a great contest from the Philadelphia Art Alliance...using only one tool to create something... Hmmmm...which tool would you choose? More details below!
Left to Your One Device  
Have you visited our new exhibition "The Tool at Hand," and wondered how you would respond to the challenge to create something using only one tool? Do you think that an assignment or a limitation can unleash unexpected creativity? Moments of genius, even? Now's your chance: enter our "Left to Your One Device" contest and find out!
Create something using only one tool. The tool can be anything you choose, and your creation can be in any discipline or medium. Make a short video, and send it to use by March 15th. In 30-90 seconds, tell us about yourself, what you created, what tool you used, and how you used it to create your entry.    

Artists, craftspeople, and creative individuals of all ages are welcome to enter the "One Device" contest. Visit our website for complete entry guidelines. Send your video, entry form, and video release form to: Digital submissions only. If you are under 18, please obtain parent/guardian permission.

The winning entries will be awarded prizes designed to inspire and help you create: hands-on experiences at The Clay Studio and Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, membership to the West Philly Tool Library, and supplies from Artists & Craftsmen, with more to be announced shortly. Entries will be juried, and prizes will be announced on April 15th, 2013. The videos of the winners and runners-up will be featured on our website. Stay tuned for more information about prizes and a special performance at the Contest Reception on April 25th, 6-8pm.
