Top Talent Award in Vienna in November

Yesterday I received advance notice of the EUROPRIX Top Talent Festival 2006 in Vienna from November 24– 25 2006. The annual EUROPRIX Top Talent Award recognises the special achievements of young multimedia producers below 30 years of age from all across Europe and celebrates the efforts of tomorrow’s best producers, Vienna is going to be the stage for the Top Talent Festival from November 24 – 25 2006. For this purpose the Palais Epstein in Vienna will host and focus on multimedia during the three days.

Along with project presentations, workshops with multimedia gurus and exhibitions, the glamorous Top Talent Gala will add a special highlight to this festival. On Saturday evening, November 25, the “Museum of Military History” will stage the Gala presenting the 21 nominees and the winners in the contest’s eight categories as well as the “EUROPRIX Top Talent 2006 Overall Winner”.

I am looking forward to the Festival again. It has developed into a three days of tanking ideas from young producers as well from the academic network. Members of the European Academy of Digital Media and the Academic Network congregate for meetings, while interesting speakers are invited to address the students and the members of the networks. I have seen some suggestions of speakers on the list and I am pretty sure that they will be of interest to all the creatives in the audience.

The nominations can already be seen on internet. It is interesting to see the sites and the projects. TTA should make an open competition of this event and invite people on the internet to vote and select the category winners. It would be interesting to see the difference between the jury of professionals and the internet jury.
