Each artist or artist team must submit for review to the selection panel:

It is possible that only part of the budget for a proposed project may be granted. Artists are welcome to include an alternative version of their proposed project with the full version that reflects a contingency plan and/or budget OR may include other potential sources of funding in lieu of full project sponsorship. If no alternate plan or funding is proposed it will be assumed that your project requires the fully requested amount.
All submissions should be saved as a single document in PDF format. Please save with ‘Reduced File Size’ to permit your application to be emailed. The total file size should not exceed 10mb. Email final proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants will receive a confirmation email upon receipt. Please refrain from inquiries once your confirmation is received. Awards will be announced in July 2015.

» Artistic ability, conceptual merit, and technical expertise;
» Responsiveness to the physical and cultural context of the site;
» Ability to foster engagement and/or interaction by those encountering the work;
