This year Fira Trapezi proposes again an international call to participate at the Audiovisual Trapezi Awards. This competition aims to boost the production of new circus narratives in this format through original short pieces, between 4 and 10 minutes. There are two categories: Circus Experiences and Circus Art.
The aim of these Awards is to give visibility, through the audiovisual and digital media, to any experience related to circus and inventive ways in which circus can be shown through the audiovisual media.
Works created from a documentary or historical point of view featuring projects, tours, history, documentation, trajectories, social circus experiences or creation processes which bring circus closer to the general audience.
Works focused on ways to explore circus through the audiovisual media. These works must convey circus’ beauty, feats, risk, personal endurance, technical excellence or body narrative.
The jury comes from the audiovisual, circus and communication fields:
- Teresa Turiera-Puigbò Bergadà, journalist and documentary director
- Erol Ileri Llordella, audiovisual director
- Pablo Domichovsky, circus artist
- Leandro Mendoza Artagaveitia, artistic director of Fira Trapezi
- Iolanda Fontgivell Pino, executive director of Fira Trapezi
Deadline: april 18th. Submit your work at [email protected]
The verdict will be made public during the 26th edition of Fira Trapezi. There only will be a winning project for each category and the monetary award is of €2000 for both categories.
