NEU NOW Future

After a very successful 9th edition this past September, the NEU NOW Live festival is taking a little time-out as we are exploring the future. Please note that we will not be issuing a Call for Nominations for 2018.

In 2018 we hope to invite you to re-discover the many talented and eager young artists who were selected for past NEU NOW editions in a special online-edition....stay tuned! 

In the meantime, the ELIA Team will take some time to re-think, reflect and brainstorm on ways to be of service to emerging artists who graduated from ELIA member institutions. 
All past Live and Online NEU NOW artists are showcased on the NXT-Creatives platform. You can visit NXT-Creatives and view the amazing works of these talented emerging artists here.

More news will be published soon.

Record Number of Nominations for NEU NOW 2017

We are excited to announce that the NEU NOW 2017 Call for Artist Nominations topped last year’s record-breaking number with a new record of 411 nominations from institutions in 38 countries from Europe, Asia, Australia, North America and South America.

This year’s call for nominations saw a significant increase in the number of nominators: jumping from 165 nominators in 2016 to 376 nominators in 2017, more than doubling the number. 

Finally, this year also saw the highest number of nominations from all past editions of NEU NOW in the categories Design/Architecture, Film/Animation and Music/Sound, with the number of nominations in Music/Sound being doubled from the previous record set in 2012.
