Procedure to be followed as far as selection and implementation of submitted
projects is concerned:
1. Selection of the projects will be held by members of the steering
committee of the festival in cooperation with representatives from collaborating
institutions, cultural centres etc. During the selection procedure, proposals
should participate in on-line discussions held on the fournos-culture mailing
list [http://www.fournos-culture.gr/maillist/] and moderated for the public,
concerning the goals and the implementation procedure of the project. The
selection will be based on the following criteria:
# Relation of the proposed projects to the "neologistic" reasoning
conveyed by the title

# Economical criteria (low-budget projects to be preferred)
* Trans-locational collaborative projects will be preferred
* Projects proposed by cultural groups traditionally under-represented
at international events will be preferred
2. The selected projects should expose to fournos-culture the progress
of their work during their implementation procedure. They should remain
open to on-line public discussions and cooperation proposals and should
be formed by the exchange of ideas and interaction with the public.
3. The selected projects will be physically presented in or net-connected
to Medi@terra 2000 International Festival, Athens in the form of a parallel
event (exhibition, projection, on-line connection etc.), workshop or other
venue to be judged attainable by the organisers, taking into account technical
requirements and cost.
