AVAM (Associated Visual Artists of Madrid) is 
organising a competition to select artistic 
projects for MADRID PROCESOS 06. This competition 
forms part of the activities run by CRAC, 
Co-ordination of Resources for Contemporary Art, 
which is an initiative promoted by AVAM that 
seeks to dynamise the artistic network by 
focusing on improving production conditions.

The objective of the MADRID PROCESOS project is 
to support and co-ordinate production processes, 
facilitating residence, exchange, training and 
access to resources for contemporary art. To 
achieve this, an international competition is 
being launched in order to select projects that 
will be developed in the second half of 2006.


1.- Participants:

Artists of any nationality and any age may 
present projects as individuals or groups. At 
least 50% of the selected artists will be persons 
from Madrid, either born there or resident in the Community of Madrid in 2006.

2.- Projects:

Projects will be focused on the production phase 
of the work, and will be organised using the 
resources available in the Community of Madrid. 
The different stages of this process will be 
displayed at MADRID PROCESOS 06 (see point 6). 
With regard to the projects, consideration will 
be given to the investigational aspect of the 
production process and projects that strengthen 
collaboration between cultural agents and 
institutions in the Community of Madrid.

Projects shall be new productions (that have never been staged before).

Eight artistic projects will be selected and included in MADRID PROCESOS 06.

In the event that projects do not comply with 
requirements, the jury may declare the competition void in full or part.

3.- Awards:

Each project shall be awarded the sum of 9,000 € 
(subject to fiscal deductions in force). This 
amount shall be allocated as follows:

6,000 €: maximum amount allocated to project 
production, including materials, travel and lodging expenses, insurance, etc.

jury to adjudicate the projects to be developed at MADRID PROCESOS 06.

6- Diffusion of projects:

AVAM CRAC undertakes to promote the diffusion of 
all work processes and of the final work with the 
mutual agreement of the corresponding author(s), 
in such a way that it deems opportune in order to 
achieve maximum diffusion of the project.

The artists shall undertake to facilitate all 
information and documentation necessary in order 
ensure correct communication and public 
awareness. The artists shall transfer 
reproduction and public communication rights for 
the work and related documentation for one year 
from the project adjudication date. Transfer of 
rights shall apply at a national and international level.

The authors of the selected projects undertake to 
authorise the reproduction and distribution of 
material created in the projects in all 
activities organised in order to diffuse the 
MADRID PROCESOS 06 programme. All such documents 
shall be filed at the AVAM documentation centre. 
The projects and selected works shall be owned by 
the authors and transfer of copyrights does not 
imply that the authors cannot exercise such 
rights simultaneously with project execution.

AVAM shall enter into a contract with each author 
to specify contractual services and terms.

7- Deadline:

Documents must be presented by 9 May 2006

8.- Performance:

All work shall be co-ordinated and supervised by 
the AVAM CRAC technical team, which shall be in 
charge of evaluating project development.

If it is deemed that the work is not being 
effected under the terms and within the deadlines 
laid down in the rules, the monetary award shall 
be automatically withdrawn, with a prior report 
presented by the AVAM technical team.

9- Acceptance of rules and the jury’s decision.

Participation in this competition implies 
agreement with the rules and the jury’s decision, 
and with any changes that may subsequently occur 
as a consequence of factors beyond AVAM CRAC’s control.
