Arts Institute accepting student submissions for New Arts Venture Challenge

February 02, 2017

UW-Madison’s Arts Institute recently announced that it is accepting submissions for the 2017 New Arts Venture Challenge.

This competition awards money to students from any discipline to fund their entrepreneurial idea, such as an arts event, exhibition, series, commercial venture or other artistic project.

Top prize is $2,000 and three $500 second prizes are available to the top four final proposals.

Lead group team members must be enrolled as a full-time student at UW-Madison. Submissions are due on April 11 by midnight. Finalists will present their proposals to the public on April 28, when the winners will be decided by a judging panel of local artists and entrepreneurs.

Previous finalists have been successful in their ventures and are in the news. Clocks in Motion, a finalist group in 2013, was recently featured on Isthmus Live Sessions. Additionally, check out this TEDx Talk on the collision of art and data by Carrie Roy, another 2013 NAVC finalist.

For more information about what to submit, eligibility, proposal samples and how to submit, visit the New Arts Venture Challenge web page.
