~ Hombres Videopoetry Award ~

Call for entries: Hombres Videopoetry Award 2019

Proving once again that the world of videopoetry and poetry film is too large for one person to keep track of, here’s a somewhat specialized contest and festival I just found out about that appears to be in its 15th year: the Hombres Videopoetry Award.


The award is in collaboration with the Italian Association “Borghi autentici d’Italia”, that put together small and medium communities, local authorities for local development. The shared objective is a sustainable local development model, respect of places and people and attention to the enhancement of local identities.

The videopoetry must develop the following theme:

“Images, perspectives and ideas about the suburb of the future. It can be also a part of an old village contest that has to maintain a well-defined identity. The concept of old village can go separately from historical, temporal and geographic aspects”.

The component of the jury are: Dimitri Ruggeri (poet, videopoet and performer ), Marco Di Gennaro (filmmaker), Alessandra Prospero (poet and publisher), M° Roberto Bisegna (musician) and Ilio Leonio (Professor and member of the organization).

The jury will select the best ten videos for the finals which will be presented in the final evening, scheduled in Carsoli (Italy) in the month of July 2019.

Awards & Prizes

The best ten videos will be screen in the “Hombres Videopoetry Festival” 2019 and the winner will be announced in the night of the festival.
