Interested in turning trash into art and winning $2,000? If you're in to sculpture, functional art, film, photography or music, you might want to consider entering into an upcoming competition. The competition has been formed to show off how solutions to our global problems are all around us - we just have to think SMART, take what we think is junk and transform it.
Anyone from any location can participate, but if you're chosen as a finalist, you'll have to cart your art to San Francisco where the Plastiki Art Exhibit will be held. Details and submission guidelines can be found at SMART Art's website.
Submit your work by May 1!
