The 17th Bremen Award for Video Art Call for Entries 2008
The annual Bremen Award for Video Art supports the production and presentation of two actual video art projects. Only concepts for audio-visual works can be submitted, that have not been previously realized.
The Filmbüro Bremen, awards two prizes for concepts of video art projects.
The curator of the award 2008 is Marikke Heinz-Hoek, videoartist from Bremen.
A three-strong independent jury of experts selects two projects and awards the prize money:
1st Prize: 4.000 EUR
2nd Prize: 1.000 EUR
The jury will award one of the prizes to participants from Bremen, Bremerhaven and their twin towns. The prize money should be used for the realisation of the artistic concepts. The premiere of the artwork should be in Bremen. Therefore the Filmbüro is organizing an exhibition for the winners in Bremen in fall 2009 (at Kunsthalle, Neues Museum Weserburg Bremen or Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst).
Video artists in the German-speaking countries (Germany, Switzerland, Austria...) as well as from Bremen's twin towns (Bratislava, Cherbourg-Octeville, Corinto, Dalian, Frederikshavn, Gdansk, Grimsby, Haifa, Izmir, Kaliningrad, Pori, Riga and Szczecin) are invited to apply. Applications must be in German or English. Each participant may submit only one concept.
