Edinburgh Art Festival is pleased to announce its open call for submissions for the 12th edition of the festival, which will run from 30 July to 30 August 2015.

If you have a project that you’d like to bring to the UK’s largest annual festival of visual art, we’d like to hear from you. Find out more below and, whether you're applying or not, stay tuned for programme announcements and more later in the year.
 

We invite proposals for projects conceived for Edinburgh Art Festival by curators, artists and organisations working in the field of visual art and visual culture. Submissions are reviewed by a selection panel and successful applicants will feature in the festival guide, map, website and PR campaign.

 This year, we are making some changes to the format and eligibility criteria of our open call. There are two strands you can apply to:
 
Special Projects and Events
If you have a project specially conceived to be shown at Edinburgh Art Festival, or you are a venue that only opens during the festival, you can apply to be part of our programme. This year, we won’t be accepting submissions from organisations with a year-round public exhibitions programme in the city. If this describes your work, please read about Festival Partnership instead.
 
A full set of criteria and an application form are available in our application pack. If you have any questions about how to apply or whether you meet our criteria, please get in touch at info@edinburghartfestival.com or on 0131 226 6558.

Proposal Deadline: Monday 16 February 2015 at 12 noon. 

Early Career Artists
We’ll be making an announcement soon about a new platform for early career artists to take part in the festival. We will be inviting submissions in late March, and will be in touch with more details soon.
