AVAM (Associated Visual Artists of Madrid) is organising a competition to select artistic projects for MADRID PROCESOS 06. This competition forms part of the activities run by CRAC, Co-ordination of Resources for Contemporary Art, which is an initiative promoted by AVAM that seeks to dynamise the artistic network by focusing on improving production conditions.

The objective of the MADRID PROCESOS project is to support and co-ordinate production processes, facilitating residence, exchange, training and access to resources for contemporary art. To achieve this, an international competition is being launched in order to select projects that will be developed in the second half of 2006.

1.- Participants:

Artists of any nationality and any age may present projects as individuals or groups. At least 50% of the selected artists will be persons from Madrid, either born there or resident in the Community of Madrid in 2006.
2.- Projects:

Projects will be focused on the production phase of the work, and will be organised using the resources available in the Community of Madrid. The different stages of this process will be displayed at MADRID PROCESOS 06 (see point 6). With regard to the projects, consideration will be given to the investigational aspect of the production process and projects that strengthen collaboration between cultural agents and institutions in the Community of Madrid.

Projects shall be new productions (that have never been staged before).

Eight artistic projects will be selected and included in MADRID PROCESOS 06.

In the event that projects do not comply with requirements, the jury may declare the competition void in full or part.
3.- Awards:

Each project shall be awarded the sum of 9,000 (subject to fiscal deductions in force). This amount shall be allocated as follows:

6,000 : maximum amount allocated to project production, including materials, travel and lodging expenses, insurance, etc.

3,000 : allocated to production fees and copyright.

5. Project selection jury:

In order to guarantee transparency in all project phases, the AVAM Board will select an external jury to adjudicate the projects to be developed at MADRID PROCESOS 06.
6- Diffusion of projects:

AVAM CRAC undertakes to promote the diffusion of all work processes and of the final work with the mutual agreement of the corresponding author(s), in such a way that it deems opportune in order to achieve maximum diffusion of the project.

The artists shall undertake to facilitate all information and documentation necessary in order ensure correct communication and public awareness. The artists shall transfer reproduction and public communication rights for the work and related documentation for one year from the project adjudication date. Transfer of rights shall apply at a national and international level.

The authors of the selected projects undertake to authorise the reproduction and distribution of material created in the projects in all activities organised in order to diffuse the MADRID PROCESOS 06 programme. All such documents shall be filed at the AVAM documentation centre. The projects and selected works shall be owned by the authors and transfer of copyrights does not imply that the authors cannot exercise such rights simultaneously with project execution.

AVAM shall enter into a contract with each author to specify contractual services and terms.
7- Deadline:

Documents must be presented by 9 May 2006
8.- Performance:

All work shall be co-ordinated and supervised by the AVAM CRAC technical team, which shall be in charge of evaluating project development.
