The annual Platinum PIAs Community Awards Show for Artists has been working very closely since 2010 with Manhattan Kids Guide when searching for nominees.
The PIAs look for artists of all kinds (including musicians, writers and filmmakers etc.) of the Upper Manhattan Community and beyond who are making a difference in their local neighborhoods and around the world.
Specific nominees that MKG brings to the table are artists who are somehow helping kids in areas such as education. It also includes teens who participate in MKG and DigiComArts workshops that occur at the New York Public Library.
Please contact Manhattan Kids Guide directly if you are, or know of, a possible PIA (Public Internet Artist) nominee.
