Artists Wanted: The Power of Self 2011
An International Celebration of Self-Portraiture, Awarding One Year of Your Life, Paid

You are invited to join the Power of Self 2011, a world-wide celebration of self portraiture awarding a Grand Prize package that includes One Year of Your Life, Paid For. Imagine taking a year off to create more art, travel the world or change your life in a way that only you can dream of.
This is about your story, your talent, your vision.
