YoungArts 2013?

volstrektvolstrekt Posts: 34Registered User Junior Member
I just submitted my application with the payment, waiting for an email with my ID number to start submitting my work. It's been all day, how long does that usually take?

I'll be submitting in visual arts. Anyone else submitting? Thoughts/concerns/ etc?

    I'm submitting, but only because you told me about it. Thanks! I'm submitting in Cinematic Arts and also Writing. It seems to be a big deal if you win.

    Right? Seems like a great opportunity. I'm submitting in visual arts. Good luck!

    Good luck to both of you! I can't enter for another 2 years.

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me whether high school Juniors are eligible for YoungArts Finalist awards, or only the honorable mention/merit awards? Thanks!
  • volstrektvolstrekt Posts: 34Registered User Junior Member
    You're eligible for the Finalist awards but not for nomination for the Presidential Scholar in the Arts, although your name will be submitted in the nomination process for next year's cycle-when you're a senior and eligible- if you are a finalist.

    Did anyone get an email confirming their submission?
  • volstrektvolstrekt Posts: 34Registered User Junior Member
    I did, a few minutes after submitting (although submitting was confusing, the interface was weird and the button kept disappearing? I wasn't sure if it had worked but they sent me this:

    "Your submission materials have been uploaded successfully. A notification letter with your adjudication results will be sent to you by mid December 2012. Best of luck from all of us at YoungArts."

  • LittleNickyLittleNicky Posts: 30Registered User Junior Member
    Nope, my sibling was HM last year and he got call from YA like way into December.
  • megpmommegpmom Posts: 2,338Registered User Senior Member
    My S is a finalist (voice) and the deadline for replying back to them to confirm was yesterday. So maybe they will start announcing the HM and merit soon. Btw, they say they received over 10,000 applications this year!
  • mathnerd1mathnerd1 Posts: 119Registered User Junior Member
    Have they announced Writing finalists yet?
  • megpmommegpmom Posts: 2,338Registered User Senior Member
    Yes, all the finalists have been notified. I believe that they will start notifying HM and merit after the Thanksgiving holiday.
