Hey Everyone! The Heartbeat of America Sponsored FIRST Entrepreneurial Artist Competition came to a close on Feb 28, 2009. The winner from Round I will be announced by April 15th, 2009.
If you have not taken the time to check out the contest entries from the first round, please do. They are inspiring, will make your heart soar and yet JUST ONE ARTIST is going to win, based not only on the quality of their entry and work, but on what readership thinks.
Each one of these contestants has taken a risk to speak from their heart and share who they are with all of us. ANYTIME we are privileged to be able to hear directly about another persons passions, it can only help us advance our own.
Which contestant speaks to you? Which one speaks to you in a way that can lift you off their written page and to a new level of inspiration for your work tomorrow?
While a few of the contestants have done a great job with their own PR, to promote their entry to be read, we also really want to know “organically”, for those of you new to these individuals, who grabs YOU and deserves national media attention? This will be continue to be an important consideration in Round II.
This has been a blast for me to host, along with everyone from Heartbeat of America. I truly wish every single one of these contestants could win.
