C.R.E.A.T.E. Project Competition

The biennial C.R.E.A.T.E. Project Competition (formerly known as the Arts Venture Competition) is designed to reward new thinking and viable, innovative ideas. The new title, Creating Resources through Engagement, Artistry, Teamwork, and Entrepreneurship, encourages flutists to take concrete steps toward giving their ideas life.

The competition seeks projects that approach performance and education in a new way (often through collaboration with communities or other genres or media). Examples of projects that are well suited for the C.R.E.A.T.E Project Competition include, but are not limited to, collaboration with community arts organizations, an online course, a series of performances, an outreach program, etc. Finalists' projects will demonstrate creativity, added value to the flute, and greater musical communities, as well as potential for long-term success.

This competition will next be held for the 2020 NFA Convention in Dallas, TX.
