Cleveland 30-Second Anthem Competition   02.01.12

Extended Deadline: March 22nd, 2012 by midnight EST

For SPACES' upcoming exhibition titled The Cleveland Convention and Visitors Bureau, we are investigating what constitutes tourism and what makes a location a "tourist destination." Ideas of economy, industry, pilgrimage, migration, memorials, entertainment, leisure, lodging, transportation, notable events, and disaster all play into the engines that fuel tourism.

To accompany the exhibition, SPACES is sponsoring an anthem writing competition. Anthems can serve as symbols and rallying points around nations, cities, or sports teams. These songs extol the virtues of peoples, histories, and lands.

Cleveland needs an anthem! And Cleveland needs you to write it! Part jingle and part anthem, your 30 second ode to the Land of Cleve may highlight your favorite aspects of our grand city. It could cover Cleveland's history, places, people, food, or anything quintessentially "Cleveland." Your anthem should be recorded as an MP3 (no scores or personal concerts) and should be submitted digitally via email or on disc delivered to SPACES. It doesn't need to be highly produced or include instrumentation (although you are welcome to do that). You can just record yourself singing with all your heart.

Ages 3+ may enter. Entries will be judged by a panel of local celebrities and SPACES' staff. Prizes will be awarded and winning submissions will be part of the exhibition The Cleveland Convention and Visitors Bureau at SPACES, May 11 July 13, 2012 as well as being available for streaming at www.spacesgallery.org.

Prizes

Award Ages 3 – 17 Ages 18+
1st Place Family/Couple Membership to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History + 2 tickets to Cleveland Cinemas $150 cash money
2nd Place 3 tickets to Cleveland Cinemas Your selection of 1 artwork from the 2011 Monster Drawing Rally + 4 free passes to the Cleveland Cinematheque
3rd Place $10 cash + 1 ticket to Cleveland Cinemas 2 admission tickets to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum
