Art Stars, a commission competition from Polo Jeans, continues on from late 2010 through to February 2011. Winning submissions of “Americana” inspired imagery will grant 16-lucky contestants opportunities to exhibit and take part in week long mentor programs – with top talent like Jasper Joffe – to create final versions of their “stars.” Fancy your luck? Submit photography, painting, film, and more here.

As part of Art Stars, Joffe recently spoke at the Royal College of Art on the subject of “DIY as Artistic Practice, Not Aesthetic.” A video recap of the evening is available after the jump.
