The Forest seeks passionate makers and creative thinkers!
This year’s UnMEDIAted Program calls all creatives – copywriters, gif-makers, social influencers, photographers, videographers, live painters, vloggers, podcasters, imaginators, inventors, and more! Submit a unique proposal that is custom-made to add to the creative spirit of The Forest.
This is an open audition to join the Electric Forest 2020 Creator Incubator – a new space for creatives to come together to support each other, integrate with The Electric Forest Media Team, and collaborate on special projects.
This program intends to connect creatives at all levels to share skills and perspectives, collaborate with HQ and fellow Forest Family, and exercise creative practices together. The dream is to bridge creative landscapes – uniting podcasters and copywriters, live painters and social influencers, vloggers and gif-makers, and more.
The spirit of The Forest extends beyond HQ. Together, we can invent, discover, enlighten, form, organize, and shape ideas that wouldn’t be possible alone.
Winners can expect daily meetups with Forest teams and collaborators to coordinate specific projects for that day – special celebrations, unique artist sets, Plug In Programs, spontaneous surprises, and more. Think of this Incubator as an opportunity to connect as artists to tell a story as a collective.
To be considered for this program, all entrants must be willing to collaborate with HQ and fellow creatives.
How to Apply
Step 1: Ideate and submit a proposal that reflects your creative skills and how you can add to Electric Forest’s 2020 creative team. You don’t have to visit a forest, you don’t have to shoot a concert – show us how Electric Forest inspires you, in whatever context you like.
Step 2: Send your proposal to HQ via the application form.

- Two (2) GA Camping Wristbands to Electric Forest 2020 (one for you and one for a guest)
