One of the 10 Burning Man Principles is Participation. There are many ways to participate at Apogaea; through volunteering, creating art and answering calls to action. Contests are another rewarding way to participate.
Each year there is a call for Apogaea Theme submissions from the community. The annual theme can help create a direction for artistic expression and provides a context around which to create and represent.
The submission deadline is usually at the end of September for the following year. Anyone can submit ideas, but each person is limited to a maximum of four (4) of his/her favorites. The theme contest winner earns the acclaim of having their idea be the chosen theme for that year, which goes down in history!
Ticket Design Contest
After the next year’s theme is chosen, the Ticket Design Contest opens. This is a yearly contest open to the community. Learn more about the Ticket Design Contest Guidelines.
