New Times is presenting our fourth annual Big Brain Awards this year -- which means a $500 cash prize for creatives in each of the following categories: performing arts, visual arts, online, design, craft and (take note, Chow Bella reader) culinary arts.

Past culinary winners have included Good Food Allies' Natalie Morris, Brian and Margita Webb from Hey Joe! and the Tuck Shop's John Cavanagh.

You -- or someone you admire -- could be next.

And stay tuned for more details about Artopia -- the party where we'll celebrate the finalists and winners -- coming soon.

Deadline for nominations is March 4.

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.
