Deadline calendar

During past decades, AV-arkki has accumulated a lot of information about media art and contemporary art events – especially from the viewpoint of the distributing of media art. This information is at the heart of the open source deadline calendar we provide for the use of all media artstis. The calendar has information about the submission dates for events showing experimental audiovisual art, media art and contemporary visual art.

For clarity’s sake, the calendar shows events according to their final application deadlines. The applications always open before these final deadlines, and it is worth sending your applications well in advance of the dates shown below.

Audiovisual artists are adviced to take advantage of online submission platforms in promoting their works.

Grants open to media artists can be applied all year round a.o. from:

AVEK, the Centre for the Promotion of Finnish Media Art

FRAME (art professionals’ international travel, international exhibitions, publications, participation in art fairs).

SES, Finnish Film Foundation (travel support for international promotion, e.g. festival travel)

AV-arkki can send the screening copies to events on behalf of its member artists. If your work has been selected to a festival or other event through your own distribution, inform AV-arkki’s archiving coordinator Vesa Puhakka in good time. We can then transfer the screening copy file to the event free of charge and help you with communications.

If you think important events or festivals are missing from the calendar or you discover a mistake in the information, please do let programme coordinator Tytti Rantanen know so that we can update the information and keep the deadline calendar up to date.
