KAJ Gallery Contemporary Art of Naples, Florida is offering video artists the opportunity to win (up to 24) 10 second tv spots on the Naples CBS affiliate television station (Wink TV). International artists are encouraged to apply. It will be determined at the time of judging if artists are awarded more than 1 commercial spot.

The theme is simply Televisiart, and any form of creative video will be considered. Videos should not exceed 10 seconds in length and must be of a certain quality (Please see the section below regarding video and audio specifications).

 Juror’s Statement:  

 Television is one of the most popular mediums for captivating a mass-audience and unfortunately there’s not a lot of pure art being broadcast on TV. The purpose of this exhibition is to provide artists the opportunity to utilize the medium in any way they see fit (of course it must be TV friendly). We’re looking for some really awesome, innovative and cutting-edge stuff, so go crazy in 10 seconds… This is Televisiart 2020!

 As part of KAJ Gallery’s one year anniversary, we decided to put this call out there and see what we get. It’s really a HUGE thank you to everyone who’s supported us in our remarkable first year! If this experiment turns out to be successful the gallery will hold subsequent TV opportunities like this in the future. KAJ Gallery is all about putting the artists first and allowing them to explore new avenues of creativity.

 The winning entries will run on the Naples CBS affiliate in December 2019 / January 2020. All finalists will have their videos placed on the KAJ Gallery website for the world to see! Thank you for your participation!
