We are proud to feature some of our applicants who have submitted themselves for consideration for the 2014 presentation. To be selected as a feature applicant one must first complete and submit their application before submitting photos and other details for a featured spot.
These amazing artists are not yet finalists and we are still accepting applicants. As a special note to artists: If you have not submitted your final application, you cannot be featured on this page or in our social media.
Applications will be reviewed on several criteria for the selection of finalists. Artists are submitting acts that reveal the breadth of their training, research, experimentation, and exploration.
If selected as a finalist, the artist's "thesis act" will be measured against unique criteria relavent to it's individuality and not against the performance of other finalists. This is a competition against oneself, and the end scoring average will result in the ranking of performers.
