Challenge Submissions


Challenge is closed


Our Sundance Challenges are open to all members of the Co//ab community. Each person who participates will receive a completed feedback form on the work they submit by one of our Sundance judges, and winners will receive Sundance membership and a one-on-one mentoring session with one of the Sundance curatorial team. 

The winning submissions will be featured on the site prominently, but all submissions will be viewable to the community. All submissions will be given equal consideration and the final winners will be determined by the consensus of the Sundance judges.

Only those submissions that meet the criteria outlined in the submission guidelines will be able to be selected as the winner.

Submission Guidelines

While you are free to submit work of any length, this site is focused on work in progress, and you will find that you will get more feedback with more targeted, shorter, selected work.

It will help the person giving feedback to know where you are in your process: is this a first draft or cut, a revision, a nearly final version of your work?

If you have specific questions about your work, please be sure to add those so that you can get the most targeted feedback possible.

Please review our full Submission Guidelines.
