Present work on vFringe

In the move to a Virtual National Arts Festival 2020, which was largely motivated by a desire to support artists to earn income and gain exposure, we have created the vFringe, 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.

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

This is where artists can register pre-recorded work on the Festival’s website. We have developed this platform to help artists generate an income for work that is presented online. There is no registration fee to use the platform but all content will be moderated – approvals and rejections will be at discretion of the NAF team, guided by universal online publication guidelines. Content presented on the vFringe platform will be secured and protected from being downloaded, or copied.

Artists can register and upload digital content to vFringe and we will put it behind a payment gateway. When an audience member purchases a ticket to view the content, 90% of the income will accrue 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.
