Fall ushers in many of our favorite things such as warm drinks by a bonfire, colorful leaves, and of course -- ArtPrize®. Although we may be sad that this annual contest means Summer is drawing to a close, we are just as excited as you are to view the 2016 entries and to vote for our favorite pieces.
Did you know ArtPrize is the most attended public art show on the planet according to The Art Newspaper? If you're new to Grand Rapids, you will surely know what ArtPrize is when you see it. This event is huge, gathering more than 1,000 entries every year since 2009. Since everyone who is anyone is going to be there, so will ManoByte!
While you're passing the B.O.B., or maybe Rosa Parks Circle admiring the many works of art, make sure you keep an eye out for the ManoByte Shark. You might remember her from our Shark Week videos like the one below:
If you happen to see the ManoByte Shark at ArtPrize be sure to take a selfie with her to enter our ManoByte Instagram Contest for your chance to win an iPad!
It's easy to enter, simply:
- Follow ManoByte on Instagram
- Share a selfie with the ManoByte Shark on your Instagram
- Tag it with #ArtPrize8 and #ManoByte

If you can find the ManoByte Shark and complete these quick steps, you will be eligible to win an iPad! Now listen up, I'm going to give you a bit of helpful advice, the ManoByte shark will be at ArtPrize Monday, October 3rd and Tuesday the 4th -- if you need more hints check out our social media during ArtPrize for clues as to where the Shark is specifically in downtown Grand Rapids.
One lucky winner will be announced after October 7th on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Must be 18 years or older to enter; entries must complete all of the contest steps to be eligible to win.
