Rhizome has extended the deadline for applications to our Commissions  

***The deadline is now midnight, April 13, 2008.***

We extended the deadline in response to artist inquiries. This year,  
we expanded the scope of our Commissions Program to be inclusive of  
projects created both on and offline in order to reflect the range of  
artistic practices engaged with emerging technology. In this same  
spirit, we revised our submission process in order to make it more  
friendly to a wide range of users. Formerly, everyone had to create  
their own web page to host their proposal. As of today, it's possible  
for applicants to publish their proposal, through an online form,  
onto a web page hosted by Rhizome. All proposals are reviewed online  
-- but are viewable only to the jury and members not the general public.

In 2009, Rhizome will award seven commissions with fees ranging from  

This year, Rhizome has expanded our scope, formerly focused strictly  
on Internet-based art to encompass the broad range of practices that  
fall under new media art.

This includes projects that creatively engage new and networked  
technologies to works that reflect on the impact of these tools and  
media in a variety of forms. With this expanded format, commissioned  
works can take the final form of online works, performance, video,  
installation or sound art. Projects can be made for the context of  
the gallery, the public, the web or networked devices.

This year, all applicants will be reviewed by a selected jury and 2  
awards will be granted through Rhizome's membership in a community  
vote. Only the jury and members can view proposals.

Proposal submission takes place online. ***The deadline is now  
midnight, April 13, 2008.***
