Medium and small market entrants who are NATAS members receive significant discounts on entry fees.
Enter the Competition — Step One:
Determine if your work is eligible, and choose your category, by reviewing the Call for Entries. Questions? Contact the office: 303.722.0916.
Put together a complete list of people who worked on the production; only those names will be eligible to receive a statue, ever. Those who are NATAS members will receive a substantial discount on entry fees (yes, each name incurs a fee): make sure everyone has renewed their membership before you enter IF you’re looking for that discount!
