I ACCEPT

Admission to VCCA is a highly selective process based on a review of applications by peer review panels consisting of professional artists. Separate panels are created for each category (poets, fiction writers, nonfiction writers, playwrights, performance, film and video artists, painters, sculptors, photographers, installation artists, composers, and cross-disciplinary artists). Panelists undergo a periodic review to ensure VCCA selections are made by the highest-caliber artists in each discipline. Panelists are rotated regularly.
