// VJ contest, Amsterdam
Visual Sensations is the national VJ-competition for the Netherlands and Belgium. Comprising workshops, a symposium, a master class and a club event that presents outstanding international live-video artists, the contest aims to provide incentive for young talent. Its premise is to stimulate and promote the artistic use of various visual media and visual languages. In 4 regional finals, a maximum of 5 VJs per evening compete with one another through live performances. The winners are invited to play at the finals at Paradiso, Amsterdam on 27th of January 2007.
The first prize this year is – next to an award of 2,500 € – to perform at CTM.07’s closing party, which at the same time is the 20 year celebration of CTM’s sister festival transmediale. Visual Sensations is a production of Paradiso-Melkweg Productiehuis.
