GRL Masterclass participants Simeon & Justin, need your help. Best known for the ‘blooding‘ of one of Adelaide’s most beloved War Memorial earlier this year (see press release), these guys are more commonly known at home in Melbourne as “Horse Bazaar”, producers of the Digital Fringe 08.

Whether you are a screen producer or a screen owner, read on…

*Digital Fringe* is now accepting entries (video, stills or audio).

Ferret around your hard drives, dig out those gems and have your work seen on hundreds of public screens.

Uploaded content will play on an extensive network of screens around the world: from retail television display walls to huge urban screens, hospitality venues, galleries, libraries and many other public nooks and
crannys.

Digital Fringe 08 Screen call out

The Digital Fringe festival is seeking all sorts of Screens!

Do you have a screen, projector, TV or old computer monitor that you would like to play free digital art on?

Digital Fringe is seeking all sorts of public screening venues to participate in 2008 - galleries, shopping centres, bars, cafes, pubs, retail venues, libraries and large public screens are all taking part.

Help us to bring cutting edge digital artworks by local and international artists to the Victorian general public.

No screen is too large or small - it may be in a back corner of a library on a computer monitor, part of a shop’s window display, a wall of TV’s in JB Hifi, a projector in a foyer, or a huge public screen. We simply want to get this artistic content into as many nooks and crannies of public space as possible.

As part of The Age 2008 Melbourne Fringe Festival, Digital Fringe will be broadcasting a curated playlist of digital art on public screens across Victoria. This playlist - the General Stream - consists of digital artwork that is submitted from around the world in response to a massive public callout. It is an eclectic mix of quality screen based digital art including animations, video, short film and stills. All artworks are G rated and do not required audio.

Screen Venues that sign up to broadcast Digital Fringe entries can play the content whenever they like during the festival (24 September - 12 October). Screening can be continuous, event focused, fitted in around your normal programming, or be used if your screen has downtime where nothing is playing.

All locations taking part in broadcasting the Digital Fringe General Stream will be promoted on the Digital Fringe website, which will feature a list of screening venues with links to partner websites and provision for logo placement, as well as be featured on a Google Map of Digital Fringe Screen locations. Last year we had over 40,000 visits to the Digital Fringe website, and the main Fringe website had 76,000 visits during the 17 days of the festival. We hope to double that this year! Screens locations may also feature in press releases.

Any screen playing Digital Fringe artworks during the festival will be helping to support artists and the promotion of digital art in local communities across Victoria. Not to mention providing free entertainment to punters, customers, and your wider community.
