Eyes on the Prize

Selling last year’s rug on eBay…

We are gearing up for this year’s DNA2009 Digital News Conference in Brussels.

The headline for all VJs is that we are once again awarding our €10,000 prize for the best VJ piece worldwide. ($15,000).

If you have a video that you have shot, cut, scripted and produced, please submit. The more, the better. There is no submission fee.

The conference will be held in Brussels March 3-4, and we are expecting close to 500 participants from Europe, The US and Asia. Perhaps more.

Central to our discussions this year will be a look at newspaper’s fight for survival and their rather rapid migration into the world of online video.  As well, we’ll be looking at the Citizen Journalist phenomenon – risks and rewards.

We’ll be joined by a contingent of European and American legislators, journalists, CEOs and jurists, and we’ll discuss the practical, the econonimcs and the legal conflicts and challenges that this new technology affords.

We’ll also be, in the model of the Harvard Business School, taking apart and analyzing a number of actual case studies of digital transformations from around the world. What worked? What didn’t work, and why.

We hope you’ll join us.


One response to “Eyes on the Prize

  1. It’s interesting to look at the DNA website. Not so long ago this kind of conference/competition would have been a fringe event. But the list of speakers speaks volumes about how seriously vj work is being treated by mainstream media.
