Triple Canopy’s Annual Call for Proposals

Triple Canopy is pleased to announce its third annual call for proposals
from artists and writers:

Commissions will be considered under six project areas and published in the
course of the next year. Artistic, editorial, and technical staff will work
closely with contributors as they develop the best approach to realizing
their projects on the Web, from the conceptual phase to the design and
technological production. Recipients receive:

– Three to six months of artistic, editorial, and technical support
– Honorarium of up to $300 as well as material costs
– Opportunity to present the project to an audience in the form of a
reading, workshop, or discussion
– Opportunity for inclusion in our annual print publication, *Invalid
Format: An Anthology of Triple Canopy*, as well as our ongoing
broadsheet series
– Archiving and long-term maintenance of the final project by technical

Triple Canopy welcomes artist projects that treat the Internet as a medium
and seek to develop ideas that engage with-but reach beyond-its specific
qualities and attendant modes of readership and viewership; artful
reporting, intelligible philosophizing, distinctive fictionalizing and the
like. Because of Triple Canopy’s unique interface we encourage writers not
to be bound by the standard styles of magazine, art, and academic writing.

*Applications are due by midnight on Monday, February 13, 2012.* Applicants
will be notified by March 1 whether their proposals have reached the second
round of review. Commission recipients will be announced on April 3.
Projects will be developed in collaboration with Triple Canopy for
publication in the online magazine (or live presentation in New York)
between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. Please direct all questions and
materials to
