Digital Audiovisual International Competition – 2nd Edition - 2020

FIAP Patronage 2020/422 - FIAF 20AVF15



The competition aims to promote the photographic audiovisual medium and to use it

to communicate their own personal vision incorporating feeling, senses and

imagination to the viewer. The contest is open to authors from all around the world

that belong or not to a club or federation. The term "author" means the person

(individual or group) that produced the audiovisual personally or has run production

using contributions from third parties and is the one to present it to the competition.

All works received will be reviewed by the official jury or a possible pre-selection jury

where there are one or more members of the official jury depending on the number

of entries received. The Official Jury will determine acceptances, prizes and any

mentions and special prizes at its discretion. The jury judges the audiovisual and not

the author.
