FOOD DEMOCRACY: Deadline is closed- works from 25 countries received!

We are very excited to have received works from around the world to this years Friendly competition!!

The theme FOOD DEMOCRACY has triggered lot's of creative energy and work. It was and is a highly interesting journey for us too. The more we investigate, the more we see how alienating and exclusive the current food system is. What we can do is to think of possibilities for redirection, inovation, recoding, education and collaboration and than put things in to practice, the practice of our everyday life.

Now the internal process begins: first we need to make sure all works are submitted properly. After that a short list will be curated. Than this selection will be curated again by the Memefest Friendly competition curators and editors. They will take three weeks time to evaluation and best works will get special written feedback. The results of this public (meta) curatorial approach will be published here online for anyone to reed. Of course there will be feedback opportunity for everyone and especially this is something we will encourage. But we'll talk more about this process later.

So when will we publish results? You need to know that this process of evaluation is highly important to us. Thorough evaluation takes time and effort.
Our curators and editors will have three weeks time and given the preselection process all together will take more than a month of work. Results will be published than and the curated works known. Also we will than announce the three recipients of the Memefest/QCA award for Imaginative Critical Intervention.

For now let's get back to work. We are excited to see and read your submissions.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted works. It is important! In this way you all are contributing to the process of research, theory and practice of Socially Responsive Communication and Art. It is crucial that we work together in developing these communication approaches. We have come a long way already.

More soon.

With Love Conflict and Imagination, Oliver- Memefest Kolektiv

ABOUT MEMEBLOG

Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.

If you feel like collaborating in this: drop us a line: memefest at memefest dot org.
