ELIA – European League of Institutes of the Arts
Call for students
ELIA is issuing a call for proposals for short videos (1 or 3 minutes) within the context of the European Commission’s promotion of multilingualism.
The competition is being organised as a contribution to the European Year of Creativity and Innovation 2009.
What kind of videos are we looking for ?
Students are asked to develop artistic proposals for video works of either one minute or three minutes length. The proposal should reflect Europe’s linguistic diversity and the role played by different languages, inspired by the theme Creativity and Innovation.
What will the selected applicants receive ?
Each selected applicant will receive a 5000 € grant in order to complete their video. A maximum of 15 proposals will be selected.
The selected films will be presented during the PRIX EUROPA Festival in Berlin (17th to 24th October 2009). Media experts will lead workshops for the selected students and their supervisors. Travel and participation costs will be covered.
A DVD compilation of selected videos will be made and distributed by the European Commission.
Who can apply ?
All students from ELIA member institutions from the 27 European Union Member States plus Norway, Iceland, Turkey and Liechtenstein can apply. Each student’s application should be signed by a faculty member of the institution or by the supervisor.
