Artwork must be figurative, but its interpretation, style, execution, and/or content can be decided by the individual artists and is not limited to strictly academic work. Notable judges will choose finalists based on how well the submitted artwork balances technical excellence with conceptual creativity.
The winners in the 2-D or 3-D categories will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to do an intensive workshop for one week in Miami.

Miami International Fine Arts is an exciting, new fine arts center which spearheads the future of private, grassroots arts programming, committed to the integral education of our community. We truly believe that the only road to freedom is through education and culture. Art is not a luxury for any advanced civilization; it is a necessity, without which creative intelligence will wither and die.
Miami International Fine Arts is committed to excellence through:
An incredible roster of instructors--who are impressive artists and creative experts in their own right--bring a lifetime of practice and tried-and-true teaching methods to MIFA’s art classes and workshops. Adjacent to the classrooms is MIFA Gallery, an exhibition space which provides a nexus for contemporary representational art to be shown, discussed, explored, and collected, serving not only South Florida, but Latin America, as well. To create artwork in an environment with rotating, diverse art displayed nearby allows for circular conversations which enrich and expand not only our supporters and students, but our whole community writ large.
Artists can submit one work in one of two categories: 2-D art (paintings and/or drawings), or 3-D art (sculpture).
