Frequently Asked Questions:

1.   Is there a deadline for entries?

These is no final deadline for uploading entries to the Iraqimemorial.org site – the project is ongoing and indefinite – as goes the war, so goes this competition.

2.*  What is the “first juror’s review”? What is the "second Juror's Review"?

For the "first juror's review", jurors each individually developed a top-ten list from the proposals submitted as of March 19th, 2008. Individual juror’s top ten lists have been published on the site as of May 1st, 2008. The "second juror's review" was March 19th, 2009 - the results from the first and second reviews are noted at the top of the "Exhibition" page. There are no further juror's reviews scheduled at this time.

3.   Why March 19th?

March 19th, 2003 is considered the start date for “Operation Iraqi Freedom".

4.   Who gets to vote on rating the entries?

The public is invited to view and rate the entries using the 5 star rating system available on each proposal page in the exhibition section of the site.  The public vote is completely separate and independent from the jury process.

5.   Will a winner be selected?

No. There will technically not be one "winner" of the competition but an ongoing process of entry and review. The hope is that participating artists and designers will feel strongly enough about the importance of memorializing civilian deaths that they will choose to involve themselves in the project.

6.   Are there any plans on building the winning entry? Do you have funds or will funds be raised using the design?

There are no plans to build or realize the entries to this project. Iraqimemorial.org does not have any funds to support the building of memorials. The intent of the project is to create, first and foremost, an Internet based repository of memorial proposals as a memorial in and of itself. Individual artists are encouraged to consider realizing their projects beyond their involvement in Iraqimemorial.org (several are already in the process of doing so).

7.   Are there any plans to create an exhibition or print publication of project proposals?

We are pleased to announce a series of travelling exhibitions of the iraqimemorial.org project to be originated at the Sheppard Fine Arts Gallery of the University of Nevada, Reno February-March 2010 followed by showings at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts September-October, 2011 and at Works/San Jose, California November-December, 2011. Selected proposals recognized by the juror's review process and others chosen by project director Joseph DeLappe will be featured in the exhibitions. Computer stations will as well be prominently featured in the gallery to facilitate public access to all proposals - as such all proposals and projects uploaded to iraqimemorial.org will be incorporated into the traveling exhibitions.

The Iraqimemorial.org Book
Pending funding, there are tentative plans to produce a book documenting the iraqimemorial.org project..
