For the next installment of the WPA’s Experimental Media Series, WPA

and two additional screenings of selections from the Phillips event
combined with student works at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

For the screening, WPA is calling all video and sound artists to
submit works that explore any subject matter of their choice in
innovative ways. A selection of the received video and sound works
will be presented in the framework of a public screening. Artists
selected for the screening nights will be notified during the last
week of August. Additionally, two artists submitting the most
compelling entries, as reviewed by the juror and based on overall
quality and innovation will be awarded the Kraft Prize for New Media
of $750 and the WPA Experimental Media Prize of $750 on October 1.
Please note that the WPA Prize will go to an artist living and working
in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Artists may submit up to 3 pieces in either sound or video with a
maximum run time of 3 minutes. Please remind artists to review the
guidelines closely in order to adhere to these basic requirements.
