At the VAST monthly General Meetings from September through April, artists are invited to share their artwork in a Mini-Show Competition. Please bring your artwork, appropriately prepared for public display, to be voted on by the members present. There are prizes for the first and second place winners in each month.
     At the May meeting, all previous months of first place winners will compete for the designation of VAST Artist of the Year. 
When VAST holds its High School Competition evening, the Mini-Show Competition for members will not be held. Please check our newsletter for information on when the High School Competition is to be held.
     Mini-Show rules are that once an artist comes in First Place in the monthly competition, she/he is automatically entered into the Artist of the Year Competition and is no longer eligible to enter further monthly competitions for the rest of the VAST year (June through May). Additionally, when a member is declared VAST Artist of the Year, we ask that they not enter the Mini-show competition for the next three years as a competitor.
     However, as the Mini-show was designed as a way for all our VAST artists to share their artwork with all members, winners of both the Artist of the Year and the Artist of the Month are welcome to show their work in the Mini-show without being competitors and their work will be so noted.
