VJ Tournament 2004, Budapest, Millenáris Park B. hall
19-20-21 March 2004
The award founder Cinetrip is setting up a VJ Championship in February
2004 in Budapest.
According to our purpose, this continuous, yearly assembly is going to
be a challenge for contemporary visual performers. While planning this
festival type of event, the fact that the contemporary visual culture
is developing and growing in a rapid pace along with the number of youngsters
who turn much interest toward electronic music, played a huge part. On
the other hand the artist of contemporary visual-media have only a few
opportunities to enroll a Hungarian or even an international contest.
We have founded the award with our persuasion that we will see the directors,
cameramen and animation makers of the future among the contestants and
audience of the festival.
According to the registrations we have received so far, there will be
lots of contenders from abroad beside the Hungarian runners, which makes
us really satisfied, because this way the Hungarian vj’s have the
opportunity to match their knowledge in international reference. Furthermore
we hope that many professional and friendly relationships will be bound
during the festival
During the championship we will give out four prizes in
In the “Conserve Category” those artist will present their
works and are able to win the prize, who have previously prepared their
work operating with the medley of moving pictures and music.
The “Live Category” favors for those vj’s, who prefer
mixing and manipulating the motion pictures and the relevant music in
front of the audience at the spot.

The CVJ tournament is wants to grow to be a tradition
