Five Calls to Phoenix Creatives
|Calling all artists...|
Zia Record Exchange: Call for Films (deadline: September 1)
The Zia Records chain is gearing up for their third annual Zia Records Film Fest and their second DVD film compilation, You Saw Us Back When: Zia Film Fest Compilation Vol. 2. They are currently taking submissions from filmmakers in the Las Vegas, Tucson, and Phoenix areas. Submissions can be movie trailers, short films, music videos, or animation (in any genre), but must not be longer than 10 minutes and must be submitted in DVD format only. Entry forms are available at all Zia locations, and also online.
|Copper Star Coffee|
They're seeking people who can cover the shop's "naked walls" with art in just three days. The chosen artists will get a month of gallery space and a First Friday opening party.
To submit work, send samples to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with an estimate of how much of Copper Star's walls you think you can fill.
Phoenix Design Week: Poster Exhibition (no deadline given; Design Week exhibitions begin October 5)
Hugo's "Dia de los Muertos" Show (no deadline given; the show is slated for November 5)
Local artist Hugo is seeking musicians, poets, artists, and dance groups for a "Dia de los Muertos" charity exhibition at the Phoenix Public Market on First Friday, November 5.
Hugo requests that artists be willing to create "live art" (an alter or interactive piece) at the show, beginning at 8 p.m. and finishing no later than 8 a.m. the next day. The art created will be auctioned off to benefit Alzheimer's research. Artists and performers interested in participating should e-mail Hugos.email@example.com.
John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowships (deadline: September 17)
The Memorial Foundation provides fellowships and grants to "advanced professionals" in many fields, including the creative arts.
The fellowships are awarded through a competition, and last from six to twelve months. Grant amounts vary. The Foundation's website states, "Applicants should have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts."
