Triplecanopy: Annual call for proposals from artists and writers

Published December 13, 2011

Triplecanopy Call for Proposals

Triple Canopy is pleased to announce its third annual call for proposals. 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 staff

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.

Triple Canopy is an online magazine, workspace, and platform for editorial and curatorial activities. Working collaboratively with writers, artists, and researchers, Triple Canopy facilitates projects that engage the Internet’s specific characteristics as a public forum and as a medium, one with its own evolving practices of reading and viewing, economies of attention, and modes of interaction. In doing so, Triple Canopy is charting an expanded field of publication, drawing on the history of print culture while acting as a hub for the exploration of emerging forms and the public spaces constituted around them. Triple Canopy is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.
