Call for Submissions

Straight Out of Brisbane is opening up the festival to talented artists everywhere to submit artwork and ideas for the program. Now is your chance to get involved in the massive celebration of independent and emerging arts, ideas and culture that will SOOB in 04.

Submissions have closed but we are still are prepared to consider some late proposals.

:: How it works and how your submission will be assessed ::

Check out why are we doing it? for a basic introduction to SOOB's aims, philosophy and past festivals. Then send us an email using the layout published below that explains your proposal.

Submissions will be read by SOOB Management and forwarded to the relevant Content Co-ordinators for their consideration. SOOB's content co-ordinators are all south-east Queensland artists themselves with experience and wide networks in their field. They are your peers and we are seeking to make this peer-review process an ongoing and integral part of the festival's programming.

Applications will be judged on how best they advance the festival's goals, specifically:

+ does your idea /artwork / event / project showcase independent and
emerging artists and art practices?

+ does your idea seek to represent, network and grow the artistic community you work in?

+ is your idea practical and achievable given SOOB's budgetary constraints?

The SOOB festival will choose submissions on the basis of how they best
fit the festival's stated aims of showcasing independent and emerging
art, culture and ideas - especially in artforms and art practices that currently receive little funding or support from other festivals and organisations in the Queensland scene.
