Submit to #veteranartistwednesday

Our job here at VAP is to support any and all Veteran Artists from New York City to San Francisco. That is why starting next week we will be launching a new initiative called ‪#‎veteranartistwednesday‬. Every wednesday we will be posting work from different veteran artists on our facebook page. All artists will need to submit to be a part of #veteranartistwednesday.

Here’s how it works:
All veteran artists from all artistic disciplines can apply. Whether you are a painter or a singer we want to see what kind of work you are creating.
In your submission please provide your name, your relation to the military, a short 30 word bio, a headshot (does not need to be professionally done), and a few samples of your work.
ANY AND ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE SENT TO submission@veteranartistprogram.org.

Once you apply your submission will be reviewed and you will be notified if you have been selected to be featured on #veteranartistwednesday.

We want #veteranartistwednesday to be a showcasing opportunity for veterans and veteran families from across the country so please share this post and help get the word out.

If you have any questions feel free to comment.

Thank you very much and we look forward to getting your submissions!

Best,
VAP Team
