CODAworx, the hub of the commissioned art economy, is pleased to announce the second annual CODAvideo Awards!
The CODAvideo Awards recognizes the best videos which tell the stories of incredible design + art projects. The CODAvideo Awards are open to all individuals and organizations involved in the creation of commissioned artwork and the video professionals who document their process. Entrants can submit to the CODAvideo Awards today and let the design + art world experience their work.
Deadline for Submissions is September 30, 2015.
Toni Sikes, CODAworx CEO, founded the awards in 2014, because she felt that “Outside of experiencing great design + art projects in person, video is simply the only medium that can transport an audience into the space, tell the story behind the artwork, give them a peek into the artist’s mind, and allow them to see the entire process of creation.”
“The jury for the CODAvideo Awards is comprised of some of the most influential figures in the video and art worlds,” states Sikes, “They represent a variety of disciplines, providing us with insight and experience in scoring diverse projects from around the world. We are honored to have their involvement!” The jurors are:
► Joslyn Barnes, Writer, Producer, Louverture Films
