Who should apply - and how to do it!

Who Can Apply?

We welcome artists, writers, farmers, chefs, teachers, engineers, community volunteers, and anyone in between to apply.  Groups, organizations, and collaborative projects are also encouraged to apply.  Keep in mind that we’re looking for ideas/projects/programs that are new or emerging and who can show a real, clear need for funding.  

If I want to apply, what else should I keep in mind?
  • Keep two things in mind: creativity and community.
  • You will not know how much funding you could win until the night of your presentation.  Funding amount depends on how many people show up and donate.  Invite your friends.
  • You will have 10 minutes to make your presentation. Be creative.  Be poignant.  Be inspirational.  Power-points, tri-boards, musical ensembles, audience participation, etc. are all options.
  • If you receive the most votes, you will receive your fat stack of dollah-dollah-billz at the end of the posSOUPbility event. 
  • If you receive posSOUPbility funding, you will be required to show us how awesome your project is by giving a progress/final report at a future posSOUPbility event.  
  • We likely share your views on censorship.  That being said, please remember that the audience at your presentation may include children.  
  • Never hesitate to ask us questions at posSOUPbility@gmail.com.
  • If more than three applications are received, not all applicants will be selected to present at the next posSOUPbility (but we love you anyway!). See the next question for more...

How do you select who presents at each posSOUPbility?
Here at posSOUPbility, we’re all about being fair, transparent, and making as much of a community impact as possible.  If we receive more than three applications for a posSOUPbility event, three innovators will be chosen to present through a blind screening process. No names - just ideas.  Applicants who are not selected are strongly encouraged to apply for the next posSOUPbility event, because every idea deserves consideration! 

I'm ready to apply!!
Great!  Cllick on the "Application" post at the top!
