(Noyan Tapan - 19.05.2011) Armenian musicians from around the world
encouraged to submit music videos for consideration

Yerevan, May 19, 2011 - The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund invites Armenian
singers from across the globe to submit music videos of their new
songs for possible inclusion in the forthcoming Telethon 2011 program.

Seeking to promote the creation of original music in Armenia,
Artsakh, and the diaspora, the fund will premiere music videos of
newly composed songs during the 12-hour Thanksgiving-Day Telethon in
November, in addition to regular fund-related programming.

"This will present up-and-coming, as well as seasoned Armenian
music artists with a great opportunity to debut their work on a
media platform watched by a global audience," says Ara Vardanyan,
executive director of the Hayastan All-Armenian Fund. "Being broadcast
internationally over and satellite as well as the internet, the
Telethon reaches millions on all continents and has grown to become
one of the Armenian people's most cherished cultural events."

The final selection of submitted music videos will be made by the
Telethon's music-production team.

The submission guidelines are as follows:

1 Original, previously unpublished song videos may be submitted by
singers residing in Armenia, Artsakh, or the diaspora.

2 Although there are no limitations as to choice of language or theme,
preference will be given to patriotic compositions.

3 Song duration should not exceed four minutes.

4 Music videos should be produced in the HD format.

5 Submission deadline is October 1, 2011.

6 Only one submission per artist will be accepted.

7 Videos should be emailed to [email protected] "Telethon Video"
should be written in the subject heading and the artist's name,
address, and phone number should be stated in the message.

8 The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund will have no financial role in the
making of submitted videos.
