Types of work examples to submit

Recent work is generally the most pertinent. Applicants who are not directly covered in the following categories should follow the procedure outlined for the category closest to their own.

You should not exclusively submit examples that are co-created, co-directed, etc., unless you are applying jointly with another person. For us to properly evaluate your application as an individual artist, writer or scholar, most of your submitted work examples should not be jointly created works.
