The purpose of the Video Creation Award is to promote the work of artists who stand out for their innovative approaches to the creation process in the world of Visual Arts. With this award, we want to promote the co-production of a project in the field of contemporary arts that incorporates video as a single or partial element in the proposal as a whole. The objective is to formulate strategic actions that can be developed in a network, increasing visibility in the territory and international presence.
