Attendees will send a text message to a phone number that will be printed on every artist label (provided by ArtPrize), along with your unique vote codes.
Why the up vote and down vote?
During first round of voting, attendees can vote an artist up or down. Only up votes count in determining an artist's standing. Down votes are only used to drive discussion and debate. ArtPrize designed voting this way knowing that an artist with the most votes up may be the most popular, but the artist with the most votes up AND down may be the most talked about, thought about and controversial work in the event.
