The 2022 BEA Festival of Media Arts: Everything you wanted to know about entering and getting involved, but were afraid to ask

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Thousands of dollars in prizes, recognition from your peers and a swanky awards ceremony - those are only a few of the reasons to enter BEA's premiere creative competition! But the breadth of work that can be entered is staggering and sometimes figuring out how to complete an entry can be a bit intimidating. This panel provides you with an opportunity to learn about each competition in the Festival directly from the competition chairs and to ask questions about the process. Additionally, we'll talk about the history of the Festival, the judging process and the acceptance rates - things you can incorporate into your promotion and tenure efforts.
