|Application Guidelines for Commissions|
|Up to twenty net art projects are commissioned and presented on Turbulence annually.|
|You may send
proposals throughout the year. Commissions are generally announced twice
a year. Upcoming Deadlines:
New York Residents: August 1, 2013
All Other Practitioners: July 1, 2013
Commissioned projects must be completed within nine months.
|Commissions are available to "emerging" and established practitioners.|
|The commissioning fee is generally $2,000 to $4,000.|
|The completed project will be presented exclusively on the Turbulence web site for three years. The artist retains copyright to the work. The artist grants NRPA the non-exclusive right to archive and present the project in perpetuity.|
|What We're Looking For|
|The goal of these commissions is to support work that creatively explores the Internet as a site of production and transmission. This includes work by individual artists and collaboratives; work that uses the net as a repository and work that explores its possibilities as a conduit. Or both. All artists are encouraged to consider how their project advances creative use of the network.|
|Different panels of jurors are assembled for each round of commissions.|
