Conference Juried Showcasing & Conf Overview

The Showcases are a centerpiece of the annual Arts Northwest Conference!

The Arts Northwest Juried Showcases are renowned for the commitment to quality and diversity, as well as its reputation as one of the most effective methods for artists to increase their visibility with presenters in the west.

The performing artists/ensembles are selected by a peer panel process to present a 12-minute excerpt of their work during the annual conference. These showcases are highly sought after and extremely competitive.


Artists from all genres are encouraged to apply for a showcase at the ANW Conference in 2018. Showcases are 12 minutes and take place at the Hult Center in Eugene, Oregon, October 8 – 11.

Conference activities are scheduled to not conflict with one another so delegates can attend all performances.

The Showcase panel will review applications in late April. Artistic quality, professional touring capability, and quality application material are the primary factors in determining the selection of artists.

In addition, the panel will take into consideration:

- Diversity of arts forms

- Racial, ethnic and geographic diversity

- Mix of artist representation and management

- Range of fees to accommodate presenters of varying budgets and size

- Outreach programs



After Hours Juried Showcasing artists are also selected from this pool of applicants. The After Hours Juried Showcases are well-attended core programs of the ANW Conference. 

The 2018 Juried Showcase will take place on October 8 -11 in Eugene, Oregon. Please ensure that the artist/ensemble will be available during that time.


Application Fee:  $100 (Non-refundable application fee) 
Confirmation Fee: $100 confirmation fee if you are a selected for a Juried Showcase.  

IF selected for a showcase the artist, ensemble or agent MUST be a member and MUST have representation in the exhibit hall at the 2017 NW Booking Conference. In the event that you meet the showcase standard but there is no more room in the Juried Showcases please indicate if you would like to be considered for an After Hours Showcase.
