You may request a specific spot, but this placement is not guaranteed. Please list placement requests in the questions section of the application. We try to accommodate all requests, but the jury makes the final decisions regarding placement of artists. The jury considers all aspects of the applicant, including score and category, when selecting the location. Every attempt is made to separate similar artists so there is greater amount of variety in different areas of the event.
