Rijksakademie's long history and sterling reputation make their development opportunities highly sought after. The volume of applications has increased in recent years and with it, the quantity and size of media that must be processed for each application.
HEIApply provides a robust platform that hosts application forms and artists' media in support of their practice. It enables artists from all over the world to apply for development opportunities during the annual Open Call and ensures Rijksakademie staff provide the ultimate applicant journey.
As digital photography and video have become more accessible, Rijksakademie have seen a considerable uptick in the quality and variety of media that artists wish to submit in support of their applications to the Open Call. The result is that staff were spending lots of time transferring large files and checking that media was viewable. With no end in sight for the increase in submitted media, a new system for processing these submissions was crucial.
Rijksakademie review their pool of applicants and selected artists after each Open Call, and therefore regularly identify information it would be useful to track. It is important to be able to make changes to application forms as part of this review process. As a result, Rijksakademie looked for a solution that would allow flexibility to change forms at need and for that process to be easy for administrators to undertake.
Rijksakademie academic staff are primed to receive very high levels of electronic communication in the weeks leading up to the deadline for applications and had traditionally managed the process of responding to applicants through the usual inbox. However, finding messages and reviewing previous communication was a time-consuming process. In addition, collating contact details for applicants where problems with submissions were evident required a lot of manual effort.
