FRIENDLY COMPETITION 2016
This years Festival theme is PLEASURE
Each year, Memefest singles out a text and/or image that serves as a focal point for a critical take on the current media, communication/design environment. In order to enable creative approaches based on various interdisciplinary, practical, and theoretical perspectives, participation is invited in different categories.
The friendly competition has three main divisions: Visual communication practice, Critical writing and Mobilization. It is open to anyone who wants to participate. Any artist, activist, writer, designer, malcontent, educator or media manipulator can enter. There is no age restriction. The only limit is your creativity and imagination.
communication practice and Critical writing are conceptualized around
the same theme: PLEASURE. Mobilization has separate outlines - you can explicitly address this years festival theme or work on your own theme as long you
create something that fits into participatory/art communication for
social and environmental change. You can also submit work that you have done in the past if it fits into Mobilization.
In order to get the best possible in-depth understanding of your work, we will categorize all submissions in two fields: Student/Academic and Non-academic.
You can register your works in one or more categories. However, a particular work can compete in one category only.
Check below the friendly competition outlines in the category that is most interesting for you.
This years Festival theme is: PLEASURE
Participation is free of charge!
Deadline for submission is SEPTEMBER: 20th
