Deadline: Received by December 16, 2005 at 5pm EST.

New Adventures in Sound Art (http://www.soundplay.ca) 
<http://www.soundplay.ca%29> and AGM
(http:// www.annualgeneralmeeting.net 
<http://www.annualgeneralmeeting.net>/) is currently accepting
submissions for inclusion in both the 2006 SOUNDplay festival and AGM
06 that will feature video/sound art works that place equal artistic
importance on image and sound and emphasizes non-narrative elements
and abstraction.  Both emerging and established artists will be
featured in the festivals. We encourage artists to submit works that
are less than 20 minutes in length.

SOUNDplay, produced by New Adventures in Sound Art, is a meeting
point for experimentation in new media and sound art, encouraging new
fusions of image, sound & text. New Adventures in Sound Art is a non-
profit organization that produces performances and installations
spanning the entire spectrum of electroacoustic and experimental
sound art. Included in its Toronto productions are: Dmimieep Wireless,
Sound Travels, Sign Waves and SOUNDplay.

AGM, based in Copenhagen, builds annual artistic collaborations and
develops new connections among participating artists and audiences
around Europe and other parts of the world. AGM 06 will feature
Canadian new media works and screenings among a selection of
international works for the 2006 event in Berlin and Copenhagen.

Please submit the following for consideration:

- VHS or DVD copy of the work
- a description or program note of the work
- biographies of the principle creators of the work.

Note: we will request permission from the artist before any works are
screened and at that time will request a screening master of the
work.  Unless otherwise requested, NAISA would like to retain copies
sent for consideration in future festivals.
