Grado Artist Series 1: FiftyThree

Your art in 500 grado boxes, and more.

We’re back with our friends at FiftyThree to do a special giveaway that’s a little different than usual. FiftyThree has created three prompts for everyone to expand upon, and the selected artist will not only receive a Grado SR225e and FiftyThree Pencil, but also a 24×36 inch print of their art, and a limited edition bio/artwork card placed in 500 Grado boxes. That’s something we’ve never done before, but we’re happy to help give your artwork the exposure that it deserves. The idea for a Grado Artist Series has been in the works for a while now and it makes sense that our first one is in partnership with FiftyThree, creators of the award winning iPad & iPhone app, Paper.

How To Enter

To enter the giveaway: download the free Paper app from the App Store and remix one of the three prompts on our Grado profile page of the Public Stream. If this is your first time using Paper, see below for more details and screenshots of how to enter. Entry will be available between November 16th, 2015 through November 25th, 2015.
