Russia Drafts the Light
The world’s biggest projection mapping and VJing contests, the Art Vision, is open for entries. Artists are welcome to submit their projects by 1 August 2016. Finalists show their works to millions of people by video projecting on the Bolshoi Theatre and the Moscow Manege, the symbols of Russia. It is the first time when VJ contest takes place in Izvestiya Hall, one of the biggest concert venues of Moscow. Winners get money prizes.
The Art Vision contest brings together specialists in audiovisual art from all around the world for researching the creative potential of the light and showing the audience its inspirational power. Nowadays the Art Vision is a global media platform that helps artists to promote their works, set reliable connections, and develop creative skills.
More than 120 contenders from 26 countries took part in the contest last year. The winners were artists from Germany, Italy, Japan, Hungary, Spain, and Chile.
The Art Vision contest is divided into three categories:
● Classic Architectural Mapping (theme – cinematography)

● VJing contest (open theme)
The international judge panel consists of professional artists and designers. The chairman of the international judge panel is lighting designer Patrick Woodroffe who has been responsible for lighting the opening and closing ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and other prime events.
