Prepare to submit your proposal
To submit a proposal, please read through the requirements and find a link to our online portal below. We’ll be asking for a description of your proposal along with examples of your work and information about yourself, including any relevant experience. Given the current situation with Covid-19, all proposals must consider social distancing guidelines in realisation and presentation of the ideas. We are asking you to think carefully about these limitations while submitting an application.
For our audio commissions, we are interested in proposals for works that will push boundaries and surprise listeners with their inventiveness and ingenuity. Audio works might take the form of spoken word, poetry, experimental narrative, or soundscapes, or combine these forms to create new approaches to sound and story. Audio works can range between 5 – 12 minutes.
For our moving image commissions, we want to hear new voices and see visual approaches that are exciting and memorable. We’re looking for strong proposals that demonstrate the breadth of possibility offered by the medium – this might be through innovation in style or structure, or new ways of working with narrative, animation, performance, scripted drama or dance. Moving image works can range from 90 seconds to 3 minutes.
For our interactive commissions, we are looking for works which employ new and emerging technologies to provide insights into powerful experiences, situations or locations. Works might be made with 360 video, binaural audio, gaming technologies, augmented, mixed, or virtual reality.
