Raw Artists has an annual award call RAWards. The whole thing begins with 2 weeks of voting. People get to vote every day for their favorite artists in the following categories: Visual arts, photography, music, fashion, make-up artists, accessories, hairstylist, performance art, and film. Voting took place October 1st through October 15th. Yesterday, they announced who made it to the semi-finals for each region...Mizzle Adventures was on the list for Orange County!
Now we are part of the Semi-finals showcase on November 17th. It will be at the Avec Nightclub in Huntington Beach from 5-9pm. All of those who attend get to vote for their favorite artists in each category. The audience votes count for 50%. The other 50% comes from the 3 judges who are asked to come down and look at our work. By the end of the night, they will announce who are winners and will be moving on to the National level.
This is so exciting and nerve wrecking at the same time. To top it off, I had signed up to do a Mud Run that day with one of my best friends. :) We are currently making arrangements to change our wave time. So, November 17th will be a typical over the top kind of day for me. I think doing the Mud run in the morning will help alleviate any nervousness or stress I will feel that morning. I've never really put myself out there like this. It is all new and exciting.
I want to make something specifically for this show. I have a few things in mind, but I know the one thing I've wanted to make. I don't think I should reveal it right now. It will just be something for everyone to look forward to!
If you would like to attend the show, tickets are $15. Make sure you list Mizzle Adventures as the artist you are planning to attend for. Here is the link: http://www.rawartists.org/orangecounty/rawards2012
I would appreciate the support! And see your reaction to my project for the next month!
