What we’re looking for:
New and compelling work; originally the work can

relate to the moving image. Please submit no more 
than three works on DVD or DV tape, Pal format, 
please send a separate application form for each 
work submitted and an up to date CV.

Deadline for application 16th March 2007 (by post 
only no hand delivery accepted)
If you do not hear from us by 10th April 2007, 
your application will have been unsuccessful.

Special requirements
If your work has its own special rig (for example 
3 wall based monitors) you will be expected to 
supply all equipment and set up your work on the 17th May.

Please note that we have no extra equipment or 
technical support for performance based work.

visions in the nunnery aims to develop 
opportunities for artists working in film, video 
and moving image, to show and critically discuss
