Jury for Guggenheim Creative Video Contest Chosen

The jury selecting the 20 winning videos for "YouTube Play", the creative video contest that is the brainchild of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and YouTube, has been chosen. Judging the submissions will be artists Takashi Murakami, Ryan McGinley, Douglas Gordon, Marilyn Minter and Shirin Neshat; Stefan Sagmeister, a graphic designer; Laurie Anderson, a performance artist; the music group Animal Collective and filmmakers Darren Aronofsky and Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

The event, inaugurated in collaboration with HP and Intel, invited members of the public to post videos made within the last two years to youtube.com/play, and so far more than 6,600 have been submitted. The deadline for submissions is July 31.
