Light Assembly prefers paperless entries submitted online.

Light Assembly provides nine different categories of submission for video artists and filmmakers. These are divided into two umbrella categories: Cinema Screenings (designated by "CS" in the entry system) and Architectural Projections (designated by "AP"). Those artists selected for Architectural Projections are responsible for a minimum additional $750 participation fee; Locations for artists will be smaller spaces, including storefronts, hotel lobbies and more, though larger main locations will also be made available at a higher optional rate. Winners are responsible for providing their own equipment and installing the projection on-location, unless otherwise noted. Please visit our Locations Info page for more information.

All AP and CS information, including a full list of locations, a schedule of screenings, times, locations and capsule descriptions of each video will be published on the Verge, Light Assembly and Art Pages sites, and will also be included in the print edition of Art Pages.

The Art Porn (CS) category is for both the hard core and soft core; visual culture porn, curator porn; fleshy or over-the-top intellectually specialized. Whatever your submission, it must conform to the definition of pornography as graphic depiction. Winners will be screened on a loop in a special LA section at Verge Art Fair Miami at The Greenview Hotel, in rooms converted into intimate screening areas.

Livecast (CS)
The Livecast (CS) category is for film and videos works that are broadcast live over the internet. New technologies such as Skype, Bambuser and others have created a niche in the film and video worlds where live broadcast can be done by anyone. Given the nature of this category, entrants are asked to submit a written proposal and speculative video sample of what they intend the final livecast to look like. Our only steadfast criteria for this category is that accepted proposals be broadcast live during the dates of the event. Winners will be embedded in special screening pages on the Verge Art Fair Miami / Light Assembly website.
