CALL FOR PROPOSALS+ Deadline for proposals: April 1, 2006 +Rhizome is pleased to announce that with support from the Greenwall Foundation, the Jerome Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, between eight and eleven new Internet art projects will be commissioned in 2006.The fee for each commission will range from $900 – $3,000.Artists are invited to submit proposals for new works of Internet-based art. There is no required theme. The works can manifest offline, as long as the Internet is a primary vehicle in the creation of the work, and the final work is accessible online, whether through a web browser, software, or some other use of internet technologies.

When evaluating proposals, the jury will consider artistic merit, technical feasibility, and online accessibility. Although we will provide some technical assistance with final integration into the Rhizome web site, artists are expected to develop projects independently and without significant technical assistance from Rhizome.

+ How to Submit a Proposal +
The jury will only consider proposals from members of To sign up for Rhizome membership, please visit:

There are two parts to proposal submission:

You must create a proposal in the form of a web site that includes the following key elements:
+ Project description (500 words maximum) that discusses your project’s core concept, how you will realize your project, and your project’s feasibility. If you plan to work with assistants, consultants, or collaborators, their roles and (if possible) names should be included.

+ You are encouraged, but not required, to include a production timeline and a project budget, which should include your own fee. If you have other funding sources for your project, please indicate this in your budget.

+ Your resume or Curriculum Vitae. For collaborative groups, provide either a collective CV or the CV’s of all participants.

+ Up to 5 work samples. Note: More is not necessarily better. You should include only work samples relevant to your proposal. If your proposal has nothing to do with photography, don’t include images from your photography portfolio. Please provide contextualizing information (title, date, medium, perhaps a brief description) to help the jury understand what they are looking at. The work sample can take any form, as long as it is accessible via the web.

When designing your web-based proposal, please note that the jury will have limited time for evaluations, so try to make your site clear and concise.

When your web-based proposal is complete, you are ready for Part Two of the proposal process:

Submit your proposal for a Rhizome Commission via an online form at
We do not accept proposals via email, snail mail, or other means. Proposals will be accepted until 12:00AM EST (that’s New York time) on Saturday, April 1, 2006. The form requires the following information:

+ Name of artist or collaborative group
+ Email address
+ Place of residence (city, state/province, country)
+ Title of the project (this can be tentative)
+ Brief description of project (50 words maximum)

Olson, artist and Editor and Curator-at-Large at Rhizome.

Rhizome members will also participate in the evaluation and awarding process through secure web-based forms. In this phase of evaluation, Rhizome members will be directed to the submitted web-based proposals. While this more open jurying process does mean that proposals could possibly be discussed publicly, there have been no reported conflicts or abuses of information reported.

+ Winners +
Winners will be contacted on or after May 23rd, 2006. Each winner will be asked to sign an agreement with governing the terms of the commission. Commissioned projects will be listed on the main Rhizome Commission page and included in the Rhizome ArtBase.
