Vox Populi is particularly interested in highlighting work in all media that pushes boundaries in terms of form and content, is ambitious and timely, and is experimental and risk-taking.

This year’s jurors are Paddy Johnson and Martine Syms.

In addition to her work on the blog, she has been published in magazines such as New York Magazine, The New York Times and The Economist.

In 2007 she received a scholarship to attend iCommons conference in Croatia as the art critic. In 2008, she served on the board of the Rockefeller Foundation New Media Fellowships and became the first blogger to earn a Creative Capital Arts Writers grant from the Creative Capital Foundation. Paddy was nominated for best art critic at The Rob Pruitt Art Awards in 2010 and 2013. In 2014, she was the subject of a VICE profile for her work as an independent art blogger.

Martine Syms (LA) is a conceptual entrepreneur based in Los Angeles who uses publishing, video, and performance to look at the making and reception of meaning in contemporary America.
