The organisation will then contact the selected projects to confirm their participation. The final selection of projects and participants will be published on our website. Please note, the final selection is definitive and indisputable.

Once selected, the directors and producers agree to take part in all our activities and provide the necessary information about their projects which will be included in our catalogue and our website. All participants, during in-person activities, authorise the use of their image for promotional purposes. The organisation will take care of the flights (economy class) and will provide housing and meals for one participant for every selected project during in-person activities.

An international Jury will award a cash Prize of €10.000,00 to one project presented at VENTURA. The organisation will also offer a variety of prizes in services, provided by our partners and sponsors. All awards will be announced on the closing day of the event.
