Application Review Criteria

After receipt of completed application, the Indiana Arts Commission will review materials to ensure that all required information was submitted. If any discrepancies are found (such as incomplete answers or uploads), the application may be ineligible for review. Each eligible application will be reviewed and scored by a conflict-free panel of professional peers. The panel review will take place in Indianapolis in the spring of 2019 and will be open to applicants and the public for observation and may be recorded (although audio quality is not guaranteed.) Applicants are invited as observers only and cannot lobby or address the panel on behalf of their applications before, during or after the panel meeting. The panel location and date will be posted on the IAC website.
