TonBild 2011 – Call for Entries

For the very first time, mica – music austria is calling for audiovisual entries for the TonBild2011 competition. Musicians and visual artists of all genres are invited to submit their audiovisual works. We are looking for audiovisual works from the year 2011 with a maximum length of 15 minutes. All participating applicants must either be an Austrian citizen or have their main residence in Austria. The choice of music and content is completely up to the artist, experimental visualizations are just as welcome as classic music videos.
