All the submitted videos (that match all our rules) become part of WIDE F.I.V.E., the online exhibit, that will be available on this website.
Between all submitted videos, a Jury will select 25 videos. The selected videos will match these fundamental requirements: for each continent the Jury select five videos, for each sense the Jury select five videos.
In this way, will result 25 videos, created by 25 different videoartists, five from each continent, and five videos about each sense.
These 25 videos will become the core of project, and will be bring around the world with the F.I.V.E. international tour.
Any participant artist, when register on website, will be matched to a sense. The match will be done automatically by a system that consider the amount of assignments already done for each sense, and then act new match in a manner focused to keep a balance between all matched senses. This with the goal to have roughly the same number of video artworks about any sense.
All artists can participate with a max of 5 videos (one for sense), but the Jury will select 25 different artists, so to submit more than one video can increase the chance to be selected, but in any case just one can be included in the international tour.
