t’s that time of the year ago folks. The Young Arts Mentorship Competition application period has opened. It ends sometime around mid October. If you are a student interested in the arts ( cinematic arts, writing, visual arts, music, performance, and design) this is a great opportunity to connect with mentors who will help you as you pursue your creative endeavors.

A a friend of mine was a finalist a few years ago and a few years ago her son also won in photography. He was flown to Miami and put up in a hotel. All his expenses were taken care of. He went around Miami taking photos with his mentors in tow. what could be better than that? A career in the arts is competition and this program will give you the support you need to become success.
