INTERNATIONAL OPEN CALL
SOUND TELLING | VIDEO TELLING
Zeugma Collective in collaboration with LAIKA aps is proud to be able to announce “Landscape2023” the third edition of the international call created to create an anthology of landscape through collaborations between sound artists and video artists.
Landscape2023 invites again this year to express themselves on the vast theme of landscape, specifically on these 3 elements:
- The fragility of landscape;
Sound must play a central role in the narrative of the submitted audiovisual product.
The first 10 works selected by our expert committee will represent the official selection of LANDSCAPE2023 and will then circulate within the activities promoted by Zeugma’s partners (events, screenings, reviews).
The authors of the 10 selected works will also be invited to the official award nights of LANDSCAPE2023. This will be an opportunity to get to know them better up close and have them tell us more about their work.
REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION
The requested works must be unpublished and accompanied by a copyright disclaimer (downloadable here) granting Zeugma and its partners the possibility to use the work for the purpose of being able to freely circulate its contents without economic constraints. The release refers only to the circulation of the work and not to authorship, which remains with the artist.

- Adherence of the work to the proposed theme;
- High technical and narrative quality;
