Call for Submissions (Edmonton): Nextfest 2012

Call for Submissions (Edmonton): Nextfest 2012

Call For Submissions from young emerging theatre artists

We will begin receiving theatre submissions Friday, Dec. 2, 2011, and will continue to receive submissions after this date. Proposals received earlier rather than later will have greater opportunity for consideration and dialogue.

Nextfest’s target is a demographic of emerging artists under the age of 30, whom have made personal commitments to a career in the arts, are not yet recognized with professional associations, and are in need of professional development and exposure. If this describes you, then…

From playwrights we are looking for un-produced scripts at any level of development. For each submitted script, we ask for a developmental history of the work, a personal assessment of its current state, and a proposed direction for its development. Script submissions should be unbound, single-sided, paginated, and include a title page with contact information.

If your proposal is atypical of a playwright based creation, then we ask that you address: your intention, your proposed process, the resources you have, the resources you don’t have, and what it is you want/need from Nextfest.

From local designers, directors, actors, stage managers, etc., we are looking for submissions that address your professional development goals.

Submissions do not have to be attached to a specific creative project. Resumes, rants, & manifestos are welcome.


There is neither application form nor application fee.

Submissions should be delivered to
The Nextfest Arts Company
