International Teletext Art Festival returns for a third year

I know I’m a bit late to this, but we must all rejoice, for ITAF14 has been announced by the powers that be, AKA the FixC Co-operative. ARD Text confirmed this on their Twitter account on 11 June, but I accidentally put my clock back two weeks and only just noticed. Without teletext to tell me when to do it, I am lost.

But this is all quite exciting, no? Expect further info next week, but here’s what I found on teletextart.com.

INTERNATIONAL TELETEXT ART FESTIVAL ITAF2014 14.8.-14.9.2014 in ARD Text, ORF TELETEXT, Swiss Text and ARTE Teletext

The FixC cooperative organises together with ARD Text, ORF TELETEXT, Swiss Text and ARTE Teletext, a festival of teletext-art ITAF2014.

The artworks are broadcasted 14.8. – 14.9.2014.
