Artists of Promise '23

 

2022 - 2023 ACADEMIC YEAR

Artists of Promise:
Highlight Your Talent this Spring!

Sharing your creative ability is about more than self expression.  It's also an opportunity to refine your work, overcome self-doubt, and build community. The Artists of Promise (AOP) Competitions are an annual showcase of student talent, from Phoenix College, and across the District.

 

Earn Recognition Across Seven Categories

Best-in-Show entries will be announced publicly at this spring's Artists of Promise Gala.  Select entrants may be invited to perform, or display, their work at the Gala.  AOP Competitions are juried by faculty, and open to MCCCD students only.  Instructors, full-time or adjunct, who are also enrolled as students are ineligible to compete.

Deadlines, entry procedures, and potential winnings are updated annually, and can differ by category, or subcategory.   Please carefully review the linked MCCCD rules pages for each artistic genre—they provide essential details for each discipline.
