the Netherlands Media Art institute will launch the Media Art Platform, a networking website for people active in media art.
For the Media Art Platform, we are looking for practitioners who are, during the course of this year, interested in contributing a (short) weblog about their work. We invite researchers and media artists to submit proposals for a future weblog of a maximum of 10 short posts.
If your proposal is accepted, you will be invited to write the proposed weblog on the Media Art Platform. Each blog post is rewarded with 30 EUR, with a maximum of 300 EUR per contributor (max. 10 postings).
From all submitted proposals, four or five will be selected.
- your blog is preferably about practical aspects of your work. Ideally, it should give a unique, ‘behind the scenes’ insight in a working process: the development of an art project, the preparation of a publication or event, a research process...
ideally, the blog is interesting for a large number of people who are active in, or interested in, media art
the blog is written in English
blog posts are short and to-the-point (max. 300 words)
your weblog must be written in the course of a few months between 15 May and 31 December 2009. Please indicate which months or which period are most convenient for you.
you remain the copyright owner of your postings and you are allowed to re-post them on your website or on other platforms, provided that you mention that the writing was commissioned for the Media Art Platform.
We are especially interested in weblogs that show a personal perspective; especially related to the development of (future) art and research projects!
Please submit the following:
* a short proposal for your weblog (max. 300 words)
* your CV and/or biography
* a link to your website (if you have one)
* one or more examples of previous writing
Deadline for submissions: 30 April 2009
Please send your submissions to info at mediaartplatform.nl
Selected/accepted writers will be informed around 15 May.
