Call for Entries are now open for BAYMN FEST!
The Bay Area Youth Media Network (BAYMN) is now accepting submissions for BAYMN FEST, its first annual youth media festival, taking place June 1–2, 2013 at the San Francisco Public Library. Youth 12-24 are invited to submit their videos in one of the following categories:
Science, Technology & Innovation
Arts & Expression
Social Justice & Community Engagement
BAYMN FEST is an interactive showcase of media produced by youth ages 12–24. Sponsored by Adobe Youth Voices and the AT&T Foundation, this two-day event will be a unique opportunity for youth, educators and the general public to celebrate the work of talented young media makers. Through screenings, workshops, a transmedia gallery and networking opportunities, BAYMN FEST will be a place for young artists to share their work, meet their peers, acquire new tools, make their voices heard—and win cash prizes and media-making tools! All entries will be judged by a mix of youth, media arts educators, and media professionals.
Prizes will be awarded to all filmmakers whose entries are accepted to the Festival. Additional cash awards and media making tools (such as GoPro cameras and Adobe design and editing software) will be presented during the Festival to award winners selected by a jury in each of the above submission categories.
Deadline for submission: April 1, 2013
