When do applications close?

Showcase and Pitch applications for APAM 2018 have now closed. Applications closed on Monday 03 July 2017 11:59PM AEST. Please note: there are no extensions or exemptions for late applications, and only AUSTRALIAN or NEW ZEALAND based performing artists or arts organisations can apply to showcase or pitch. 

How many Showcase and Pitch spots are available?

This entirely depends on the number and quality of applications we receive. Our Curatorial Panel will use the number of full-length productions, excerpt showcases and pitches previously presented at APAM as a guide.

How will successful applicants be selected?

Successful applicants will be selected by the APAM Curatorial Panel, a group of internationally recognised artists and producers that have come together to curate the program for APAM 2018.

There are two Curatorial Panel sub-groups; one for Australian works and one for New Zealand works.

The respective APAM Curatorial Panel groups will meet in August 2017 to deliberate all APAM program applications. Successful applicants will be notified on 01 September 2017.

> How will applications be picked by the panel? 

The panel will consider:

  • The quality, distinctiveness and significance of the work.

  • The work’s suitability for national and international audiences.  

  • The creative team, the artistic realisation (if applicable), critical review, and audience response (if applicable) to the proposed work.

  • Previous touring experience of the artist/company and, if this is limited, the steps the artist/company has in place to follow up.

  • Methods in place to manage any on-going relationships that arise.

  • Capacity to tour the work (e.g. artists availability, set, insurance, budget, marketing etc.)

>Will feedback be provided to Showcase and Pitch applicants regarding final decisions / outcomes?

No feedback will be available from the Curatorial process.
