Artists Apply Here!

The next Soup N’at is March 31, 2019!

The application deadline has been extended to January 31, 2019, just follow these steps:

Step 1: Submit your proposal (CLICK HERE)

Step 2: Email your images

Submit at least 2 images that will appear alongside your written proposal and/or be displayed at SOUP N’AT. Images can include photos, design images, sketches, etc. that help to convey information about the specifics and scope of your project. Please send all images to and include the project title from your proposal.

Step 3: Wait for confirmation and invite your friends!

We will inform you at least a month before the upcoming SOUP N’AT if your proposal was selected for the ballot.


* Proposals will be presented at meals in a two-minute presentation. The format of the presentation is up to you, we simply ask that you are responsible for all technical elements of your presentation.  We will project slides for each project in a uniform presentation behind the stage during presentations.

*We strongly encourage you to attend SOUP N’AT with lots of friends, who may vote for, as well as informally speak with patrons about, your project.

*Yep, if you are on the ballot, you can vote for yourself.

*Organizers reserve the right to exclude a proposal if it is inappropriate for funding through SOUP N’AT, and thus disqualify it from the current application process.  Our selection process will be based on the following requirements:

  1. Repeats: Apply for Soup N’at as many times as you like, until you win. Winners will be considered for a second round of funding on a case-by-case basis.
  2. Place: Soup N’at supports local artists and communities. For this reason, preference will be given to applicants currently residing in, or impacting Pittsburgh and the surrounding suburbs.
  3. Scale: If you already have funding from other sources that exceeds $1,000, applications may be considered inappropriate for this small grassroots fundraiser.
  4. Diversity: We are seeking a variety of art forms on each ballot. Bonus points for creativity, not media.

*Please note that we often get more applications than can fit on a ballot. If you don’t make it on the ballot, apply again!


Thank You And Good Luck!

  1. Hello. I am confused about the dates for the proposal acceptance window. It says up top “September 1-November 1” but then when I click at the “Apply Here”, the application says the proposal window is December1-January 1″. Could you please respond?

    1. YES – we had to cancel the October 6th event due to low artist interest (likely due to the Carnegie International) – please join us on November 10th instead.
