Calling All Entrepreneurs!

Consider submitting your great idea to the New Arts Venture Challenge.


The UW–Madison New Arts Venture Challenge is a campus-wide competition encouraging new thinking and innovative ideas. Entrants will develop and submit a thorough proposal for an arts event, exhibition, series, commercial venture, or other artistic projects.

Proposals should demonstrate creativity, innovation, added value to the arts, and potential for success. After the top four finalists are selected, they will present their projects to a panel of judges. The first prize award is $2,000 and $500 for second prize (up to three awards for second). The deadline is April 14, 2015. You can find out more about the application process on our website.
