RAW: Natural Born Artists is a community of artists, for artists.The independent organization aims to provide creatives with the tools, resources and exposure needed to inspire and cultivate creativity in the first 10 years of their career.

RAW operates in 65 cities and counting across the United States and Australia, and features a showcase once a month in each city to highlight artists in the areas of hair and makeup, performance, fashion, film, visual art, music and more.

Each year RAW hosts a national competition to honor the best artists in the country. At 7 P.M. on Thursday, Nov. 8RAW Artists Phoenix will host its semi-final event at Martini Ranch in Scottsdale. Attendees and a panel of local judges will vote on their favorite artists and one winner from each category will travel to Los Angeles in January to compete against semi-finalists from other RAW cities.
