This years Festival theme is RADICAL INTIMACIES: DIALOGUE IN OUR TIMES
Each year, Memefest singles out a text and/or image that serves as a focal point for a critical take on the current media and communication 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 Beyond…. 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.
Visual communication practice and Critical writing are conceptualized around the same theme. Beyond… 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.
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.
Participation is free of charge!
