ArtPrize hasn't been our little secret for a while.  Time Magazine is making sure it's going to stay that way.

Time has named ArtPrize as the fourth best festival in the world in 2013.

Today, the Travel section in Time listed "five festive events you won't want to miss in 2013".  It's quite the list.

You'll find festivals in Indonesia, Sweden, Serbia, New Zealand, and GRAND RAPIDS!

The prize money is the largest of its kind in the world, but ArtPrize’s real difference isn’t cash. It’s the event’s “unusual and daring ability to completely democratize the process of artistic judgment,” says 2011 judge Noit Banai. “Whether one agrees or disagrees with the grand public’s choice, the process empowers ordinary people to be the sole judge of value.”

Seems like a fair description of what makes ArtPrize so successful.

Congratulations to ArtPrize!
