The surrounding landscape and fall frenzy should be inspiration enough to get to work on something creative.
And if you're itching to have your work sent around the country (and perhaps world) via snail mail, you'll want to check out MADE art boutique's Phoenix Postcard Competition.

The local art boutique is looking to increase its selection of Phoenix-based postcards and is looking for Phoenix-inspired designs in the forms of photographs, 2D artwork, cartoons, etc. by November 15.
Designs will be posted on the MADE Facebook page and will be put up for popular vote. The top three postcards with the most likes on December 9 will be printed and sold at MADE for 50 cents.
All participating artists receive 15 percent off of one item at MADE and the winner wil receive a $50 gift card to MADE and 200 of their printed postcards.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
