Jason Allen lives in Colorado, and last week ignited a debate that’s going to be up and running: Use AI to create art, and send it to Colorado State Gallery of Fine Arts (Opens in a new tab) Competition, and won the first prize. Needless to say, some people don’t like the idea.

There are some important facts to note. Allen has somewhat of a credit for what he did, crediting his submissions as being by ‘Jason Allen via Midjourney’, and also spending a significant amount of time working on the claims to produce the final artwork: “several weeks,” he says. He also worked on images that Midjourney created in Photoshop, to be completed by hand.
