What’s so great about WORSHIP THE BRAND?
• Artists in this niche genre will get major online exposure for their work.
• Through a partnership with Creative Capital (the most prestigious non-profit arts organization in the country that supports artists through funding, counsel, and career development services), visitors to the site will have access to invaluable business tips and advice from Creative Capital’s Professional Development Program and top industry pros on how to get their work seen and sold.
• WORSHIP THE BRAND is currently running an “UPLOAD CHALLENGE” for artists and crafters at all skill levels to upload their brand-inspired art, crafts, or fan art to the Worship the Brand Gallery where they’ll be eligible to win $500! Winner will be selected at random and announced on Sept. 17th, 2014.
“We are obsessed with brands as art. To us, turning the every day into something extraordinary is an incredible creative exercise,” says award-winning author and artist Hillary Carlip, who conceived of WORSHIP THE BRAND when her work was included in a museum show traveling to five cities in 2013/2014.
Carlip shared her idea of a website devoted to brand-inspired work and fan art with Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe winner Maxine Lapiduss, a branding consultant and creative strategist who works with a variety of brands, media companies, and artists. Together they’ve created a community that supports and encourages artists and crafters — and not just by providing a place for them to share and showcase their brand art, but also by offering frequent opportunities to WIN CASH to help support themselves as artists. Upcoming contest prizes will be $2,500.
“We wanted to be able to give actual money away,” says Lapiduss, “because finding ways to make a living from art most often takes more work than creating the art to begin with.” To make that possible, they contacted several companies, and Sweet’N Low was first to jump at the chance to support artists by generously providing prize money for upcoming contests on the site.
WORSHIP THE BRAND is part of a much larger, groundbreaking transmedia, “CLICK LIT” project called FIND ME I’M YOURS that Carlip and Lapiduss are launching on November 3, 2014.
