Idyllwild Arts Academy is looking to grant talented young students the opportunity to win scholarships to IAA's Moving Pictures and Visual Art departments through the Hollywood Ending and Body Mapping-A Visual Art Competition contests.  

Contestants interested in the Hollywood Ending writing contest will create their own Hollywood ending to "Mantra for a Salesman", an original screenplay written by a current senior in the Moving Pictures department. If chosen as one of the finalists, you could be the recipient of a $25,000 scholarship for Grand Prize, $10,000 for Second Prize and a $5,000 scholarship for Third Prize.

For Body Mapping -A Visual Art Competition and Exhibition the top three works will receive scholarship prizes of $25,000 scholarship for Grand Prize, $15,000 for Second Prize and a $10,000 scholarship for Third Prize. The guidelines are for a student to use the body as a map or template that refers metaphorically to other ideas. The overall theme is "Body Mapping". The size and media are not to exceed 8"x10"x6". The work can be done in 2-D or 3-D and be of any media.

Both contests are sponsored by the Idyllwild Arts Academy and are open to students 13-18 years old in any country worldwide. This prestigious contest will give the winning students a scholarship to attend the only West Coast boarding high school for the arts and is intended for the 2008-2009 academic year. The deadline for submission is January 15, 2008 at 12:00 midnight P.S.T.
