Just a quick reblog for those video artists in the Triangle, via artnet.com:
NEW ART PRIZE FOR VIDEO ARTISTS
The video website Babelgum, a YouTube competitor, has launched three new cash prizes for video artists, two for $5,000 and one for $20,000 with a jury that boasts movie star Isabella Rossellini as its chairwoman. Winners also get their vids screened on jumbo monitors in Times Square in New York City. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 18, 2009. Details are available at www.babelgum.com.
Great to see video art getting some undivided attention!
