2nd International Video Reporting Award
www.videoreporter.org


The 2nd International Video Reporting Award is an international
competition specifically geared towards innovative documentary shorts
and non-fiction digital films helmed by a single autonomous author.

Video Reporting is the merge of cinematography, editing, sound and
directing in one single persons hand.
Film and television technicians adopt these digital documentary
techniques and regard the resultant new autonomous ways of production as
a challenge.

Not only will the jury and the preselection committee judge the idea and
conception of the film but they will also place great emphasis on the
way the filmmaker creatively dealt with the new digital authoring
principle.

Smaller cameras offer more freedom of movement and consequently often
lead to new perspectives and prospects differing from what you see on
television.
Additionally, commercial video editing software has achieved a level of
sophistication allowing for quick and playful experimentation with the
footage.
The end results are journalistic films which inspire new boundaries in
the field of TV journalism.

We seek outstanding films that experiment with this new mode of
production and whose journalistic-cinematic narrative catches our
attention in form and content.

Furthermore the films should withstand traditional quality criteria and
simultaneously broaden the boundaries of mainstream television.

We are looking for documentary films and authentically narrated stories
captivating us with their particular intensity, an innovative creativity
and a very distinctive personal authoring style.

We also place a great deal of emphasis on the filmmakers fondness for
experimentation, however, keeping in mind the presented films should not
exceed 15 minutes and they should have been produced by one or more
Video Reporters/ Video Journalists.


The 2nd International Video Reporting Award is being borne by the
Bauhaus University Weimar as well as those television broadcast stations
that are already working together with Video Journalists large scale ?
Hessischer Rundfunk, Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk, Deutsche Welle TV .

The 2nd International Video Reporting Award is going to take place on
the 5. and 6. November in Weimar. It is being organised by the
professorship Medienereignisse of the media faculty of the Bauhaus
University Weimar.
