Applicants must submit a documented proposal of the project, including photos, videos, artist's CV, previous works, and any material of their choice.

Sucessful submissions will consider the specific rural environment of Sierra de Huelva and its inhabitants, taking into account the natural environment and its fusion with specific fields of contemporary art. There is a special interest in interdisciplinary and experimental projects in the fields of action art, sound art, video art, artistic experimentation, installations and interventions.
