Aug 22: Michael Budden Takes Top Prize in Laumeister Competition

Mike Budden

Michael Budden (NRA-1999) of Chesterfield, NJ won top prize in the national Laumeister Competition, sponsored by the Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, VT. Artists from around the country competed for a first prize of $4000.00. Nationally acclaimed artist / juror Scott Christensen from Idaho first narrowed the submissions down to 53 accepted works, after which he picked the top three prize winners and several honorable mentions.

“I knew about this competition because a friend of mine won it in the past and this is the first time I entered it. Low and behold, I won top prize. Amazing. I have been experimenting with this foggy evening theme of the Brooklyn Bridge and thought it might work for me. I have had both positive and not so positive response to the image from my artists friends but I stuck with my gut feeling that it is a viable image for me. I’m thrilled that the Bennington Center for the Arts is sponsoring this competition. They treat artists with the upmost care and professionalism and Im also happy Scott liked the image also.”
