To vote in ArtPrize you must create an account, then physically come downtown to activate your account.

Once activated, you are free to vote as you please.  But it can be hard to find the time to see everything you would like to see during ArtPrize.

How often do you vote for ArtPrize entries you haven't seen in person?

ArtPrize is full of art.  ArtPrize is also full of deadlines.  Round 1 voting ends September 29.  Round 2 voting ends October 4.  It's not easy to see everything you would like to.  It can be tempting to take shortcuts.  Voting without actually seeing a piece is allowed, but it is not the intent of the competition.

Pictures and reviews of art are nice, but nothing can match seeing a piece of art in person.  I have been surprised, both pleasantly and unpleasantly, by pieces of art that didn't match my expectations.  That's the fun of ArtPrize.
