Do you have what it takes to be Tarcher’s Next Top Artist?

Tarcher/Penguin, one of the premier publishers of personal growth books for nearly 40 years, is hosting a national creativity competition to celebrate two classic, bestselling creativity programs: The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron and Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards.

The competition consists of two parts – writing and drawing – and you are free to enter one or both competitions. Writing and drawing entries will be judged on their technical merit as well as their artistic expression.

Create an original piece of art reflecting the theme of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain, and enter for the opportunity to have your artwork featured in an ad in the Fall 2012 issue of The Artist’s Magazine (ARV: $8,000.00).  Or, enter for the opportunity to have your fiction or narrative non-fiction manuscript critiqued by an editor from Tarcher/Penguin (ARV $10,000.00).  Both winners will also each receive a $5,000.00 cash prize!

No purchase necessary, and there is no fee to enter. Open to residents of the fifty United States and the District of Columbia, age 14 or older.Void where prohibited by law.

The competition begins January 1, 2012. Follow Tarcher Books on Facebook or Twitter to stay up to date on competition announcements.
