[BKARTS] 2007 Florida Artists' Book Prize ($2,000)



FLORIDA ARTISTS' BOOK PRIZE

Broward County Library's Bienes Museum of the Modern Book, The Dianne
and Michael Bienes Special Collections and Rare Book Library, and the
Florida Center for the Book, are pleased to announce the continuing
sponsorship of the annual Florida Artists' Book Prize. 

The eleventh annual prize of $2,000 will be awarded in 2008. An
exhibition of a selection of the entries and an award ceremony will be
held on February 21, 2008, in the Bienes Museum of the Modern Book, Fort
Lauderdale, Florida.

CRITERIA FOR ENTRY

*	The entry must be created or published in an edition (i.e., more
than one copy), but cannot be a trade edition (i.e., produced
commercially by a publishing house for sale nationally or
internationally) nor can it be a one-of-a-kind.
*	The artist's primary residence must be the State of Florida.
*	The book entered in the competition must have been created or
published in the calendar year 2007.
*	DEADLINE FOR ENTRY: Completed entry forms and a copy of each
book must be received in the Bienes Museum by January 14th, 2008.
*	The prize may be won by the same artist only two years in a row.
Artists who have won the prize two years in a row are encouraged to
enter a book(s) the third year, but it will not be eligible to win.

The prize-winning artists' book becomes the property of the Bienes
Museum. All other books entered will be returned after the judging,
except those titles selected for inclusion in the Florida Artists' Book
Prize Exhibition and Award Ceremony. The retained books will be returned
after the end of the exhibition run.

The prize will be administered jointly by the Bienes Museum of the
Modern Book and the Florida Center for the Book

adjudicated in early 2008 by a jury comprised of: Ruth & Marvin Sackner,
