Dear IPAY friends,
The springtime for IPAY brings our annual Showcase Selection Committee Meeting, where we rigorously adjudicate the international applications for Showcases and Spotlights. We're proud to announce that we've received submissions from 11 different countries, representing a wide variety of work for young audiences!
As always, we've received a very competitive mix of applications from IPAY members and newcomers alike, but this year we're especially excited to share some application pool statistics with you!
To gain a little more insight about the applicants that will go to panel this year, please have a look at the
2020 Showcase Application Summary
below. Showcase Selection Committee will meet from June 17-19 in Philadelphia, PA for three full days of application review.
This time of year also brings about new resources and updates, such as the announcement of our Kindling focus at Showcase 2020, and the release of resources from our Kindling and SPARK presenters in 2019. Read on to find out more!
We want to take this opportunity to remind you of our
IPAY Community Calendar
. We created this tool to aggregate the amazing work that you, our members, are doing for young audiences in your individual communities! Starting in June, we will be highlighting a
Member Event, sourced from this calendar. Make sure you submit your events!
We hope you'll take this advantage of this tool, and continue to stay in touch with us throughout the year.
