BIP - BUILDING INTERACTIVE PLAYGROUNDS
2nd edition  Elettrowave, July 14-16 2006  Arezzo/Italy

We are currently accepting applications to participate in the second 
edition of BIP, an International Competition for interaction design 
projects for public events.

BIP will happen during Elettrowave, a three day festival of 
electronic music.
Elettrowave is part of Arezzowave, the biggest free music festival in =

Italy.

01  WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
If you want to play with space and time and people, if you like 
crossing barriers and probing around in extreme situations, if you 
fiddle around with the idea the space can be programmed, if you eat 
social patterns for your breakfast, if you are not scared by a drunk 
young audience, if you keep telling your friends that environments 
are not passive wrappings but active processes, if your perceptions 
keep shifting, if your projects are about interplay, exploration and 
humor, if tinkering with technology is your obsession...
...then... this call for works is your unique chance to experiment 
with interaction design within the context of an electronic music 
festival. Nightlife, extreme characters, clubbing freaks,  a young, 
unrespectuful and challenging audience. You know what we are talking 
about, don't you?

We are looking for projects. Not vague ideas. Real projects that can 
substantially and meaningfully enrich the Elettrowave event and 
strengthen involvement. Clubbing is the context, not the object, of BIP.
We're looking for something innovative, passionate and fresh that can =

make a difference.
Interactive installations, environments, sound and/or visual 
projects, etc.
If your project is at an early stage we will consider it only if you 
can prove you'll be able to produce it within the festival deadline. 
We may offer production assistance if we fall in love with your 
project proposal.
Please keep in mind that the projects should be able to stand 3 
nights of extremely intense use, in a venue with thousands of people. =

Please consider production feasibility and all possible setup 
constraints.

02  WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Participation is open to applicants from every country in the world, 
to (interaction) designers, artists, researchers, architects, 
students. Participation is free.

03  SUBMISSION DEADLINE
All project proposals must be postmarked by March 10th, 2006.
Late entries will not be accepted. By submitting a project, the 
applicant warrants that it is his/her original design.

04  HOW AND WHEN ARE THE PROJECTS SELECTED?
In March 2006, a panel of jurors will select up to 3 projects.
Winners will be announced during a workshop/event in April. The event =

will be hosted by Universit=E0 di Siena, Italy.

05  AWARDS
Selected projects will be installed for the three nights of 
Elettrowave 2006. This is a precious opportunity to test your 
interactive projects in the context of an electronic music festival.
The projects will benefit from a total budget of 10.000 euros offered =

by BIP. The budget will be divided between the selected projects 
according to production, transportation and setup costs. BIP will 
consider supporting production costs of new projects that are being 
presented to the public for the first time.
Commonly used technology (videoprojectors, screens, audio systems, 
monitors, mixers, etc.) will be available to the selected projects if =

required.

06  HOW MANY PROJECTS CAN I SUBMIT?
