THE ARTISTS FORUM CHOREOGRAPHY COMPETITION, part of our Juried Arts Festival programming, is open to choreographers seeking to gain exposure in the New York City and international dance community.
Its mission is to provide an accessible platform for innovative choreographers to present their best work for juried selection, increase artist communication and business contacts, provide career advancement opportunities, and publicly award the work and talents of creative artists.
*While submissions aligned with our theme are preferred, we also accept non-theme related works.
Our 2024 Juried Arts Festival will be held in New York City this Spring.
Each submission, reviewed by a panel of industry professionals, will be rated upon its individual merits. Finalists in each category will be judged against one another and a winner declared. Please see Rules & Terms for eligibility.
Award recognition will be given at a ceremony in New York City, alongside screenings of selected films. In the case of COVID-19 restrictions, our award ceremony will be conducted online and then televised on Manhattan cable stations shortly thereafter.
All finalists will be considered for a MEET THE ARTISTS video profile and promoted on our online platforms.
Winners will be considered for a formal studio or Zoom interview with host to be promoted via THE ARTISTS FORUM TELEVISION – a 20+ year arts based television program broadcasted from mid-town Manhattan in New York City.
