To apply artists are required to create a web page for their proposals (either on their own site or via Rhizome's online application system), including a 500 word project description, production timeline and budget, plus CV and samples of previous work.

Deadline for applications is 15 April, with the voting process beginning on 18 April. For full details on submitting an application head here.
