Like HyPe 2013 Audience Choice Award

Salamanca Arts Centre

​Give away $5,000 and a place at the 2014 Junction Arts Festival

Like HyPe 2013 Audience Choice Award channels the zeitgeist of reality TV shows like “Australia’s Got Talent” and other competitive arenas where performing artists battle on stage for fame and fortune.

The Like HyPe 2013 Audience Choice Award is voted by Junction Arts Festival audiences and presented to the artist with the most popular pitch idea. The Award includes $5,000 toward the development of their performance and a place in the 2014 Junction Arts Festival.

Up to ten Tasmanian finalists will present five-minute pitches of cutting-edge, hybrid performances. Audience members vote on their favourite pitch and decide which artist’s work will be funded and presented at the 2014 Festival.

This collaboration between Salamanca Arts Centre and Junction Arts Festival is specifically tailored for artists employing multiple performance languages, including performance, visual art, music, sound art and physical theatre, encouraging innovation in live art and experimentation in venue/site and audience engagement.
