Center for Arts Management and Technology Receives
Prestigious Techie Award for Creating New Software
PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University's Center for Arts Management and Technology (CAMT) has earned the Techie Award from Grassroots.org for its pioneering contributions to nonprofit online applications development. The award reflects Grassroots.org's dedication to promoting online innovation and fostering open application development in the nonprofit community.
CAMT was honored for the design and creation of CueRate, software developed for the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) that allows artists' applications and work samples to be submitted and reviewed online. Before the introduction of CueRate, NYFA used thousands of slides to review artists' work, but now they can view high-resolution work online. NYFA's transition to CueRate has been highly successful, saving the foundation up to $20,000 in staff time and postage.
"The nature of technology means that there are myriad opportunities for strategic collaboration that will benefit not only individual organizations but our field as a whole," said CAMT Executive Director Cary McQueen Morrow. "Our collaboration with NYFA created software that facilitates application and review processes for fellowships, exhibitions, festivals and universities. We are proud to be leaders in the field, actively working to meet the needs of our colleagues and friends in the nonprofit arts community."
