FARM Accepting Official Showcase Submissions!!

We are NOW accepting submissions for an Official Showcase spot at FARM 2016 (Oct 27 – 30, Iowa City).

Click HERE for details and to file your submission!

Split between the evenings of October 28th & 29th, FARM 2016 will feature 14 Official Showcase Artists.  There is only one Official Showcase happening at a time, and there are no other conference events during the Official Showcase time.  In other words, all eyes will be on YOU when you perform!

2016 Submissions will follow the same process as year’s past.  Submissions will be accepted until May 31st.  Official Showcase Artists will be privately notified July 1st, and the public announcement will be July 15th.
We’re looking forward to another year of spectacular Official Showcases in October!  If you haven’t registered yet, do so now HERE!  See you at FARM!
