The SOOB 2006 Call for Submissions has now closed.

Straight Out of Brisbane is built on the creativity of Brisbane and Australia's artistic community. For that reason the festival features a strongly peer-reviewed submission process. We depend on high-quality submissions to continue to support SOOB's highly innovative programming.

This year we received hundreds of submissions plus many more informal enquiries. The SOOB festival is only able to afford to present a small fraction of the many high-quality submissions received.

Submissions for SOOB 2006 have closed, and SOOB has no future programming opportunities to announce yet. But SOOB remains interested in hearing about developments in the field. We welcome artists who get in contact with us, even if we can merely point you in the direction of another presenting opportunity.

Dates for SOOB 2008 will be announced in late 2006, along with submission dates for that festival, so stay tuned!
