The Artblog and The St.Claire are teaming up to find the best new approaches in art writing. The goal of this competition is to get more people writing about art and foster a culture of art writing that incorporates a wide spectrum of methods, styles and ideas. The best writing will not only address the art in question, but also progress the conversation into unexpected and unclaimed territories.

This contest is in conjunction with Philadelphia's first ever New Art Writing Symposium -- a collaboration between the Artblog and The St.Claire to bring together over a month of activities designed to examine, expand and celebrate the state of art writing in Philadelphia.
