In preparing for this exhibition, please note that ICECA can provide only 
equipment for exhibition of works, and is extremely limited on financial 
assistance in case of special hardware required. Therefore the Festival 
will generally only accept works which it can accommodate using available 
equipment (PCs computers, video projectors, sound equipment, video/web 
cameras, vcd/dvd/cdrom players, still cameras and alike.

One of our sponsors is providing international airway transportation for 
selected works. In case your work/installation requires such transport 
please mark clearly: “support in transport required” and include detailed 
information about the cargo (detailed description, dimensions, value and 
several images of the equipment being part of the work).

Many media installations require complex installation and custom hardware, 
in case you wish to submit a work which requires special setup please mark 
your proposal clearly and please include technical specs advance (in Thai 
or English) together with videos of exhibited works. These videos will be 
presented in lieu of the work itself in case the festival is unable to find 
the financial/technical solution to present the work itself.

ICECA also requests your (the artist’s) permission, to include a copy of 
the submitted work in ICECA’s Digital New Media Art Library (already 
including nearly 100 international works from previous events).

Submissions will be reviewed by the advisory board of SWU Faculty of Fine 
Arts with the help of volunteer art students. A final decision will be made 
by artistic director of the Festival Francis Wittenberger. The Festival 
reserve the right to reject works, yet a detailed note will be issues to 
each artist both in case of acceptance or rejection.

* ICECA has moved its centre of activity to Thailand's Capital ­ Bangkok 
and has nothing to do with the pretentious "Supernatural Media Festival" 
which is organized by those who forced ICECA to quit its non-profit 
activity in the northern city Chiang-Mai. This therefore, and no other is 
the only authentic call for proposals for “Thailand New Media Art Festival 
2004 - Bangkok”

* a single e-mail attachment should not exceed 1 Mb;

With Best wishes for the New Year,

Francis Wittenberger
