Developed by YouTube and the Guggenheim Museum, in collaboration with HP, the YouTube Play seeks to entice the interaction between creativity and online video, inviting participants to create works of creative video, including animation, motion graphics, narrative, non-narrative, or documentary work, music videos, and entirely new art forms.
The democratization of video broadcasting, enabled by services such as YouTube, has permited users with practically any budget to show their creativity online and this collaboration between Youtube and Guggenheim is an opportunity to gain visibility and recognition.
Those wishing to participate are invited to submit until July 31, 2010, new or existing videos created within the last two years prior to June 14.
The Guggenheim Museum will choose up to 200 videos for online viewing at youtube.com/play, of which up to 20 videos will be selected by a jury of experts chaired by Nancy Spector, Deputy Director and Chief Curator of the Solommon R. Guggenheim Foundation, and comprised of renowned artists, filmmakers, graphic designers and musicians to be showcased at the Guggenheim Museum in New York during a special event on October 21, 2010 and on view to the public between October 22–24, with simultaneous presentations at the Guggenheim museums in Berlin, Bilbao, and Venice.
For more information about the event, please refer to the YouTube Play website and carefully read the participation criteria to avoid disapointment.
The Art Inquirer would like to remind its readers that overlooking a single participation rule in juried shows is often enough to void participation.
Good luck to those entering this event.
