program Transfera www.transfera.es  It is left open without restrictions the
call to select, by means of a criteria in which will be valued particularly
the quality, the experimentation, the innovation and the risk, the creations
of all those audio-visual artists who wish that their works are promoted and
broadcasted through a weekly and independent program of television
broadcasted at La Central Digital/Canal Autor, a cable channel based in
Madrid, Spain.

The content of the tv program Transfera is exclusively dedicated to divulgue
videoart in all its modalities (any processes of image-sound interaction,
without exclusion of the experimental cinema), with the aim to disclose to
the great public a view of the consolidated videoartists and offer a
platform for all those emergent videoartists with a future projection who
contribute with renewing proposals, avoid conventional visual language and
does not find their place in other mass media spaces.

Due to the difficult challenge that supposes to raise a project of this
spread, destined essentially to compensate the well-known mediatic absence,
in this first stage of non-profit test and consolidation of Transfera, the
relation with the artists will be based on a principle of promotion and
visibility, a guideline directed to strengthen the sustainability of the
program. Once assured the continuity, a remuneration will be agreed with the
selected participants.

There is no deadline nor restrictions for the age of the participants or for
the amount of material desired to send.

All the participants can also send a brief promotional video about
themselves and their work (not more than 4 minutes long), that will be
included within the program as a presentation of their art.

The interested must send their works in a PAL DVD or video format mpeg or
mov uncompressed files, (720x576 resolution, preferably 16:9, but 4:3 is
also accepted), with an acceptable quality for broadcasting, an jpg image of
the video, a brief CV with their personal data, contact and a signed
permission form to the address below.

Transfera cannot return the sent material. However, all the received
material will enter, unless the authors express the contrary, in the
selection for the II Edition of MADATAC, the Open Festival of Contemporary
Audio-Visual Art that Transfera Media Arts will organize in Madrid, Spain,
