Sent: Sat, 28 Jul 2007 13:08
Subject: Fwd: Viridian Note: Not a Viridian Note

Key concepts: SHARE festival 2008, SHARE contest,
digital art prize

Attention Conservation Notice: an announcement
probably pretty typical of the work I will
be up to for the next seven months. It's
about Italian cyberculture and design.

Competition Announcement: Share Prize 2008
Introduction

SHARE AWARD : DIGITAL ART PRIZE 2008
Competition announcement
Art. 1
Subject
Piemonte Share Festival announces the second edition
of the Share Prize 2008 for digital art.
The competition jury will award a prize of E2,500.00
to the work (published or unpublished) which best
represents experimentation between arts and new
technologies.
(((I am the chairman of this competition jury.
Yes, me! As all entrants to Viridian Design Contests
know, I take such duties with lethal seriousness.
Are you an experimental new-media digital-arts
type with a hankering to stun all Europe? You
are? Then trot that thing over pronto.))

The candidates for the prize (a short list of a
maximum of 6 competitors) will be guests at the 4th
edition of the Share Festival, taking place in Turin
March 2008 at the Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti,
Turin. In order to be declared winner of the prize,
every artist has to take part in the 4th edition of
Share Festival, by preparing his or her work of art,
to be properly evaluated by jury and public.

The organization is available at offering all the
costs regarding the preparation of the 6 selected
works as well as travel and accommodation expenses
for the artists, and, possibly, the prize itself.
(((That's right, we will FLY YOU TO EUROPE and
likely feed you spaghetti there, given that the Euro
is at an unprecedented $1.38. That'll might
even make up for mysterious Italian withholding
taxes on the Italian prize.)))

Nomination of 6 candidates for the prize: by November,
2007. The announcement will be published on the
following website: www.toshare.it
The winner will be announced in March 2008 during
the award ceremony at Share Festival. (((And
I certainly plan to attend that and to congratulate
the winner personally.)))

it's good!)))

announcement committee

straw-wrapped Chianti bottles, sunglassed babes
in tailored Milanese suits and stiletto heels,
yes, when they said "Belle Arti" they weren't
kidding about it)))
