THE AIM FESTIVAL
AIM, in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Arts, Los Angeles, presents Luna Park: a series of critical inquiries into the crucial issues raised by the nexus of art, technology, entertainment and activism in the context of globalization and the rising privatization of culture. At the core of this debate is the ascendance of entertainment and our ubiquitous, and largely unquestioned, fascination with the spectacular.
Titled in reference to the world\’s first modern amusement park AIM III: Luna Park takes place January ‚ April 2002, and consists of a series of dynamic lectures, culminating in a two-day symposium, an International Student Competition and exhibition, and a number of related events.

THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENT COMPETITION
AIM III seeks student entries for its International Student Competition. The selected entries will be hosted by AIM in an online exhibition, featured in an exhibition at USC, and will become part of the select pool of works that AIM draws on when touring internationally. Prizes, including the $1000 USC SOFA Award, will be awarded by a distinguished jury including: designer, writer, researcher, and performer Brenda Laurel, and author, researcher, and curator Erkki Huhtamo.
Submission Criteria: Works must be \’time-based\’ and created by a student, of any age, working in any discipline. Works should also be capable of exhibition on the Internet, and address the festival theme. AIM defines \’time-based\’ to include: websites, Internet projects, film, video, digital video, hand-drawn and digital animation, interactive computer games, sound pieces, digital media, CD-ROMs, and DVDs – as well as various emerging hybrids that elude traditional categorization. All entries must be completed after October 1, 1999, and be complete enough for on-line presentation at the time of submission. All entries must be postmarked no later than January 15, 2002.
How to Enter: Submission to AIM is free. Submit copies of projects (no originals please) in the form of a DVD, VCD, VHS (NTSC), Macintosh CD-ROM, or a URL, as appropriate. Other formats can be accommodated by prior arrangement with AIM.
