Upon uploading content, applicants allow us to maintain content and demographic information in our database, which we can make available via the Internet for purposes of review by authorized parties. Applicants will pay a per-submission fee to submit materials into ArtsApp, and organizations will pay a monthly fee to have materials available for adjudication. The amount of the fee for an organization is $150/month for standard membership, and $200/month for a Pro membership.
