Metropolitan Phoenix is home to some Big Brains -- people busy creating and re-creating this city, making a home for fine food, eye-popping art and top-notch performance.
Building community, whether through architecture or social media.
Marking their turf online, on film and on the runway.
This spring, New Times will honor a group of emerging creatives with our first-ever Big Brain Awards and we need your help.
We're looking to honor individuals, not institutions -- the folks on the ground floor, rather than those already gathering accolades.
Click here and tell us why you - or someone you know - deserves to win a $1000 cash prize in one the following categories: design/fashion, visual art, performing art, online media or film/video.
Finalists will be profiled online and in the paper May 20, and winners will be announced Saturday, May 22 at Phoenix New Times' 40th anniversary party at Madcap Theaters in Tempe.
