Q: Is my work good enough to be considered?
A: Part of Victory Arts’ mission is to find and promote new artists and then to take those works to underserved communities. We accomplish this mission by considering works that are created by people with talent and have an idea of how the work could be produced and help others. If you think you match this, then submit away!
Q: My work is not full-length! Do you accept short plays, single tracks or short videos?
A: We do. That said, we also must consider the audience the work is intended for and what the hoped-for outcome is. We feel that the world can be changed one minute a t a time, so short is fine as long as it has a point and a can be produced or shown anywhere.
Q: How long will it take before I hear back from you?
A: We get a lot of submissions. It may take up to 4 months to respond and let you know whether we would like to see more or not.
Q: Should I follow up with you?
A: How proactive of you! It’s much appreciated, but we got this. Please don’t follow up on your submission. We are doing our best to respond in a timely manner.
Q: Can I resubmit work?
A: Once a work has been submitted in that format, please do not resubmit the work.
Q: Will I get feedback on my submission?
A: Oh, how we wish we could give feedback to everyone who makes a submission. However, due to the volume of submissions and the limited size of our staff, we are unable to provide feedback.
Q: What happens next?
A: If we find that Victory Arts would like to support your submission we will request additional information from you or we will let you know that you made it and we’re on your team! If we decide the work is not the right fit for Victory Arts, we will let you know that, as well. Again, this could take up to 6 months. Please be patient. Rest assured we will be in contact with you again to follow up. We know the (often overwhelming) time and effort the submission process takes for playwrights. Musicians, digital craftspeople and the like. We appreciate your hard work and wish you the best with all of your endeavors. Thank you for considering Victory Arts for your submission. Please feel free to contact Randall at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions or concerns.
