After you have signed as an artist nominee, consider the quality of your profile. To edit your profile go to the top of you nomination page and click on “edit” by the word Profile. The site will take you profile page, where editing is an option.
A quality profile is expansive, informing the reader about you and your relationship to your work, your overall philosophy and how you create your work. It is a very important feature as it sets the tone for your nomination and gives the viewers a better understanding of your work. Present it in the same way you would provide information about yourself for an artists talk. Include your personal background and how you have come to do what you do. Write creatively as you would for a publication. While you can include performances, exhibitions, awards, education, etc., remember there is an option elsewhere to upload a detailed CV. The profile page does not need to go into this in depth, just state the highlights. If you have a personal website related to your work be sure to include the information in the proper box for the readers access. If you are submitting as a collective, include how the group came into being and its intent, and overall actions. It is not necessary to include detailed information on your nomination projects in your profile statement, as there is room specifically created to write in detail about each project on your nomination page.
