What information will I need to fill in my application?
Apart from basic contact information and details on the piece you would like to present, you will need to complete more essay-like questions about the work you plan to present and your interest in the festival. Our Application page allows you to reference the full app before you complete it.
Will I be able to partially complete my application and return to it later?
No. Once you click “Submit” on your application, you will not be able to return to it to edit any of your information. We strongly suggest you prepare your responses in a separate document before completing the application form so you can be sure to submit a complete application.
Will I be able to re-submit my application once I’ve sent it?
No. Once you click “Submit” on your application, you will not be able to access the information to re-submit it. If you have made an error on your application, send us an email letting us know what the correct information is.
How many pieces of work can I submit in my proposal?
Performing artists will have up to 30 minutes each for their performance. You may choose to present one piece, a few smaller pieces, or excerpts of a longer piece within that 30 minutes. You may not exceed this 30-minute limit; however, you are welcome to request less performance time if your work will not fill the whole 30 minutes. You will be prompted to note the length of your word in your application. For each piece submitted, you must complete a full piece detail and description.
How should I submit videos of my work samples?
First upload your video to YouTube or Vimeo and then list the link to it in your application under the piece description. You may upload up to 5 minutes of footage. You do not need to combine footage of multiple pieces into one video, but videos must be edited to fit the 5 minute limit of total footage.
How should I submit photos of my work?
Photos can be uploaded to any online photo album (Facebook, MobileMe, Flickr, Picasa, etc.) for which you may designate a link to a specific album or image. Once your album is complete, list the link to it in your application under the piece description. You may upload up to 10 total photos of your work. Please indicate in individual photo captions which work the picture is for.
I have supplemental or written materials that I would like to submit as part of my application. How do I do this?
Additional information such as a full resume, review, or excerpted script should be uploaded to Google Docs and the public link should be listed in your piece descriptions. You may send up to 5 documents for each piece proposed. For theater and spoken word artists, scripts and other written work samples do not count towards this 5-document limit.
