Present work on vFringe

VFringe was born out of the National Arts Festival’s desire to support artists to earn income and gain exposure. It is a digital platform for artists to share their work with home-based audiences.

The vFringe accommodates a ticketed video-on-demand platform, a visual art directory, a virtual green trading space for crafters, and an advertising space for live events held on third-party platforms. Content is available to the public for a duration of six months.

To participate in the vFringe you need register on the Artist Zone, fill in the details about your work and upload your video. Simple!

vFringe Video-on-Demand Events

Once artists have registered on the Artist Zone, pre-recorded content can be uploaded. There is no registration fee to use the platform but all content is moderated – approvals and rejections are at the discretion of the NAF team, guided by universal online publication guidelines. Content presented on the vFringe platform is secured and protected from being downloaded, or copied.

Content needs to be in the correct format. Artists need to upload a minimum of two jpegs in landscape format (640×360 at a minimum of 100DPI), and all video files must be MP4s.

Uploaded content is put behind a payment gateway and is available for a duration of six months. When an audience member purchases a ticket to view the content, 90% of the income accrues to the artist. The audience member will only be able to view the content for a limited time period using a limited number of clicks.

Tickets will only be sold to pre-recorded events hosted on the Festival’s website.
