Bioré Skincare has teamed up with GenArt to co-host the UNCOVER/DISCOVER Program, which is a nationwide competition that hopes to discover fresh talent in the fields of music, film, fashion and the visual arts.
How Do I Participate?
From March 1, 2007 through May 31, 2007, young female consumers can submit original work in four categories: visual arts, fashion design, music and short film. Submit your portfolio at www.bioregenart.com.
What’s In It For Me?
Six semifinalists will be chosen for each category by the panel of judges and will receive a luxurious basket of Bioré skincare goodies. Entries will be online at www.bioregenart.com and people can vote for their favorite three in each category.
The grand prize winner from each category will be selected by the panel. Past judges have included Diane Von Furstenberg, Cynthia Rowley, John Bartlett, Susan Sarandon, Hal Rubenstein, Nicole Miller, Adrien Grenier, Maggie Rizer, Thora Birch, Mary Alice Stevenson, Ben Chaplin, Alex Wek, Kimora Lee Simmons and Tim Gunn.
Each grand prize winner will receive a whopping $20,000 to further their career. So get your canvases, music scores, portfolios and reels ready — good luck!
