Punto y Raya 2012 JUNIOR call for entries - Aug 15 '12

Postby Charles » Mon Mar 19, 2012 8:13 am

Dear friends of Punto y Raya,

It is a pleasure to inform you that we're launching a new version of our festival, made FOR and BY children aged 6 to 12 years.

Following the same spirit that has earned us the title of "Most abstract festival in the World", this edition will host the same kind of activities as the "adult" one (calls for entries, workshops, screenings, installations, exhibitions and live PyRformances) under the motto "No representation, only dots and lines".

The CALLS FOR ENTRIES are currently open, and the selected works will compete for the Jury and Audience Awards.

SHORT FILM Call for entries: abstract short films experimenting with dots and lines in various contexts. All techniques are welcome; maximum running time is 6 minutes and the soundtrack cannot feature articulated words. View the eligibility criteria: ... jr_eng.php

PHOTOGRAPHY Call for entries: abstract photography experimenting with dots and lines in various contexts. All formats and techniques are welcome. View the eligibility criteria here: ... jr_eng.php

Submissions are free and can be made online. Deadline: August 15th, 2012

The first edition of Punto y Raya Junior will take place on November 10th & 11th 2012 at the CCCB (Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Barcelona) with free admission.

And from March through October, we'll be organizing for children at various associated venues. We'll post all the details soon.

For those who still don't know Punto y Raya, this multidisciplinary festival studies the essence of the artistic expression; it uses the minimum grains of all representation systems (the dot and the line) as ends in themselves, inviting creators and audiences to explore the artistic experience in its purest state: form, color, motion, tension and sound. Punto y Raya subscribes to the spirit of "Art for Art's sake"; that unique experience that only abstraction can encompass in all its dimensions.

For more information regarding our three "adult" editions, please visit our website.

Awaiting with enthusiasm the children's works,

Warm regards,

Daily Z
