NYWIFT:  Voice-Over for the International Market 4/14

There are opportunities for voice-over artists in a wide variety of areas, especially if you are bilingual or multilingual. Translation jobs are an obvious choice. But what does it take to land other types of great paying voice-over jobs - and how do you break in? How do you decide if your voice is better suited for audiobooks, video games, narration - in other words, how do you find your niche? Join NYWIFT and our panel of industry veterans for a lively discussion about the competitive field of voice-over.

With Denia Brache, Manuel Herrara, Felisa Kazen, Mari Mori, Elsie Stark, and Vivienne Jurado. Produced by Vivienne Jurado and Ylana Kellar.

2015 Collaboration Award


The Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, Inc. will present the 2015 Collaboration Award recognizing Women Working with Women.

The $1,000 Collaboration Award and additional honorable mentions are designed to encourage professional women in the arts and media from different specializations to work collaboratively on the creation of a new artistic work.  As the aim of the award is to encourage women to work collaboratively with women of other disciplines, each collaborative team must be comprised of female members of different Coalition associations, unions, guilds and affiliates of The Coalition.  Eligible teams may submit any form of creative collaboration on a new work that had its first public performance within the last two years 2013-2015. A Public Performance can include, but is not limited to a staged reading, gallery show, screenings, concert series, etc.
Submissions will be judged on the basis of artistic excellence, diversity, and clarity.  All topics and subjects will be considered.  Special attention shall be given to those projects which reflect the goals of the Coalition:  to advance women's work and women's issues.
The team that has been selected and the honorable mentions will be invited to be recognized at an awards ceremony in New York in October 2015.  Women outside of New York may send a designee to speak about their project and accept the award.
Teams of two or more women working together on the creative project may apply for the 2015 Collaboration Award.  Applicants must be members in good standing of two different organizations and/or affiliates with The Coalition.  (See organizations below.)
The application is online at www.womenartsmediacoalition.org and can be saved and re-worked there until complete and submitted to us. A pdf of the application may also be accessed there in order to work on a submission offline.

Deadline:  The deadline for the return of completed applications is midnight 11:59 p.m. Thursday, April 30, 2015.  Award winners will be announced by September, 2015.
