One of our sponsors is providing international airway transportation for selected works. In case your work/installation requires such transport please mark clearly: "support in transport required" and include detailed information about the cargo (detailed description, dimensions, value and several images of the equipment being part of the work).

Many media installations require complex installation and custom hardware, in case you wish to submit a work which requires special setup please mark your proposal clearly and please include technical specs advance (in Thai or English) together with videos of exhibited works. These videos will be presented in lieu of the work itself in case the festival is unable to find the financial/technical solution to present the work itself.

Submissions will be reviewed by the advisory board of SWU Faculty of Fine Arts with the help of volunteer art students.

      * remarks






 Deadline 20 February 2003. 


* ICECA has moved its centre of activity to Thailand's Capital - Bangkok and has nothing to do with the pretentious "Supernatural Media Festival" which is organized by those who forced ICECA to quit its non-profit activity in the northern city Chiang-Mai. This therefore, and no other is the only authentic call for proposals for "Thailand New Media Art Festival 2004 - Bangkok"


* a single e-mail attachment should not exceed 1 Mb;




With Best wishes for the New Year,

Francis Wittenberger
