Calling all video and sound artists...
Washington Project for the Arts is pleased to present the sixth Experimental Media Series, a screening series of innovative video and sound works. The Experimental Media Series was created to showcase the new media work of exceptional and under-recognized talent and provide a venue for experimental media in the Washington, DC area. Since 2006, EMS has presented the work of over 150 artists, including Julia Oldham, Stefanie Barber, Stan Brakhage, Paul Chan, Herman Asselberghs, Miranda July, Jose Ruiz, and Champ Taylor.
All video and sound artists are invited to submit one recent work that is no longer than 5 minutes, exploring any subject matter of their choice. From the received submissions, juror Paul D. Miller will create a selection of video and sound works to be presented in a series of public screenings. Artists whose work has been selected for the screening programs will be notified during the first week of November. Additionally, two artists submitting the most compelling entries, based on overall quality and originality as determined by the juror, will be awarded the Kraft Prize for New Media of $750 and the WPA Experimental Media Prize of $750 on January 20. Please note that the WPA Prize will go to an artist living and working in the Mid-Atlantic region.
