On 29, Apr 2011 | No Comments | In Uncategorized | By man-admin

Time to get your tuchus into the studio and your best work to the photographer.  The Orsoni Prize Deadline is July 31st.

Most exciting:  There are no size or weight limitations for entries to the Orsoni Prize 2011.

This welcome change will open up the competition to additional, exciting segments of the mosaic community; those who make large scale and architectural mosaics.  Once again, the entries will be judged by Maestro Lucio Orsoni, award-winning artist and great grandson of the founder of Orsoni Veneziani and Pino Bisazza, the founder and president of Trend Group.
