SESC Pompéia – São Paulo /// 

Submissions for the 15th Videobrasil International Electronic Art Festival, 
promoted by SESC-SP, and supported by Prince Claus Fund, are now open. This 
edition of the Festival will adopt a new structure placing greater emphasis 
on research and production from the so-called southern circuit. Works will 
be selected for three exhibitions: “Contemporary investigations”, “New 
vectors” and “Southern panoramas”. The first of these exhibitions will 
stress innovation in research, while “New vectors” will focus on emergent 
producers or groups. “Southern panoramas” aims to bring together works that 
broaden the current state of southern production art. The jury will award 
one piece from each exhibition, and other works will be able to receive 
special mention.

The regulations and enrolment form are already available from the 
Associação Cultural Videobrasil website and the deadline for submissions is 
set for April 15, 2005. The selection committee will assess work from Latin 
America, Caribbean, Africa, South-East Asia, Eastern Europe, Middle East 
and Oceania. To make submission easier, for the first time ever enrolment 
forms can be filled out directly through the Associação’s website. Off-line 
submissions sent via normal mail will also be accepted.

The Festival was created in 1983 and is today the most important electronic 
art event in the southern hemisphere. The exhibition aims to stimulate 
research into new mediums and encourage interchange among the nations of 
the southern circuit. Each edition of the Festival brings retrospectives 
and especially commissioned works from major names in global electronic art.
