Creative Ground Contest

In the setting of Yes!, I look for a job. I imagine it. I find it, Sineglossa organized the first contest of the Marche Region dedicated to creative and cultural businesses.


Creative Ground is a national  contest that supports the transformation of projects into creative and cultural businesses, inviting people to make sustainable, innovative and scalable proposals designed in relation to the social and economical needs of a specific territory, intended as a geographical, urban, social, cultural and economical context.


36 projects coming from all over Italy participated in the first edition.


To the eight finalist a two days workshop was offered finalized towards a pitch presentation of their idea ad a speed-date with a heterogeneous nucleus of local entrepreneurs, called to evaluate the presentation, appeal and sustainability of the projects.

Winner of the contest was Make a book, an art photo publishing project curated by WishotLab, to which the concrete opportunity of starting up in the business world was offered thanks to a grant of 10.000 euros.


From the Make a Book project the Skinnerboox independent publishing house was born, targeted to contemporary photography and awarded the best publisher of the year by PhotoESPANA (Madrid) 2018.
