Now What?

So, you created a Portfolio and entered the Festival, but what happens next?

Giles Deacon marking Fashion Entries for NOISEfest14

We are absolutely overwhelmed with the response and quality of the entries. At the moment NOISE Team are busy sorting, whilst the Curators are rating your NOISE Festival 2014 submissions.

Should you find a message from the NOISE Team in your inbox, it’s probably because we want your entry and portfolio to look its best – this means everything should be formatted correctly and all fields should be filled. We’ve got a handy blog series, “
Making the Most of your ePortfolio”, where you’ll find help for fixing it up and making it look fabulous!

Letting you know
Selected artists will be informed of their success towards the end of the Summer, right in time for the NOISE Showcase. Due to the sheer number of entries we are unable to offer individual feedback.
When the Festival launches on the 9th September, if you have received a Best in Show, Curators Choice, Outstanding or Excellent rating, it will show up on your entry as your own badge of honour, talent and awesomeness.

The NOISE Team are gearing up for the Autumn Showcase – a series of events around the country, and media coverage designed to provide exposure for the chosen NOISE Festival 2014 creatives. It all kicks off at our super exclusive, invite-only event at the House of Commons on the 9th September, where the chosen artists will meet their Curators and have the chance to talk to them about their work. 
We’ll announce all showcase events very soon.

After the Showcase
Post-showcase, we’ll of course be following the progress of the Artists, like we’ve done for previous Curator’s Choices here, keeping all the newspaper clippings and then *gulp* planning the next festival! 
Also, the LIVE Q&A Webinars with our panel of Curators will continue, the next one taking place this month with Comedy & Spoken Word Curator, Doc Brown and go on until the end of the year. 

Watch this space for more developments and NOISE news regarding upcoming events as part of this year’s Festival and follow us @NOISEfestival for regular updates.
