> You are invited to submit through:
> In order to submit, first add yourself as a website user (if you haven't
> already done so for a prior submission), log in, and then use the My
> Submissions <http://collisioncollective.org/mysubs
> submit your proposal. After initially submitting, you can edit your
> proposal up until the submission deadline of Saturday, Jan 14, 2012. If you
> have several works to enter, multiple submissions are fine, but generally
> only one piece per person will be accepted unless they are a series. You
> may submit a proposal for a piece yet to be realized, but the likelihood of
> its completion will be considered during judging. Axiom will comfortably
> house moderately-sized artworks and installations, but space is somewhat
> limited. Please limit your proposed work to around 500 cubic feet (about an
> 8*8*8' cube, dimensions variable) as really large projections, etc. will
> negatively impact the number of works to be shown.
> As ever, works will be judged according to the following criteria (in
> decreasing order of importance):
> art / technology
-- be techno in production or product
> safe -- do not be dangerous to patrons
> completed / available -- be available including artist
> fits space -- be a team player
> exciting / novel -- be fun and unique
> thought provoking -- be smart
> crafty -- be quality
> Some examples of recent works accepted into Collision shows can be found at
. Please take these as a general
> guide to the genre covered, but not as a limitation of your creative
> parameters. We want to see your ideas!
