The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, together with YouTube, the world’s largest online video community, announced the launch of YouTube Play. A Biennial of Creative Video. A collaboration with HP, YouTube Play was conceived to discover and showcase the most exceptional talent working in the ever-expanding realm of online video. Open to the global online community,YouTube Play is the most inclusive international search for new creative video. A jury of experts comprising celebrated figures from the worlds of art, design, film, and entertainment will select up to 20 videos submitted from around the world to be presented at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on October 21, 2010, with simultaneous presentations at the Guggenheim museums in Berlin, Bilbao, and Venice. The works will also be available to a worldwide audience on the special YouTube Play channel at youtube.com/play.

The goal of this unprecedented project is to discover and celebrate work that expands the notion of what video can be. Submissions may include any form of creative video, including art, animation, motion graphics, narrative and non-narrative work, or entirely new art forms. YouTube Play hopes to attract innovative, original, and surprising videos from around the world, regardless of genre, technique, background, or budget. Participants can be art students or amateur video makers as well as creative professionals.

To help video creators generate the best possible submissions, the YouTube Play channel will post HP Make tutorials, featuring editing, sound, and other video-making techniques.

Participants are invited to submit new or existing videos created within the last two years to a YouTube Play channel at youtube.com/play. The maximum running time for a video is ten minutes. Each participant will be asked to provide a written statement regarding his or her work. Only one video per participant will be considered. The deadline for submission is July 31, 2010, 12:00 p.m., Pacific Time, 3:00 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.

The creators of the jury-selected videos will be invited to participate in the October 21 event in New York, and the videos will be on view to the public from October 22 through 24 in the Tower 2 Gallery of the museum. The video presentations will also be available to a worldwide audience on the YouTube Play channel at youtube.com/play. In addition, the selected videos will be on view at the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin; the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao; and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice.
