WHUT’S Best Art Show in the DMV – ARTICO: ART IN YOUR COMMUNITY – wants you to be part of our next episode. Over the last few weeks we’ve seen a lot of creativity online, as people seek to express themselves, while stuck at home. And we’re sure artists in the DMV have lots of talent to showcase as well. Since ARTICO producers can’t go out and shoot stories, right now, because of social distancing and Covid 19, we’re asking you to send us your best at-home performances. Submission is open only to legal residents of Washington, DC., Maryland and Virginia who reside within the WHUT TV broadcast viewing area.















Qualified entrants shall submit a video no less than 3 minutes and no more than five minutes. If it its longer than five minutes, it will not be looked at. The Producer will select five artists to feature in an upcoming episode. We’re looking for unique talent, creative presentation, and good technical quality. And material must be appropriate for general audiences. Producer reserves the right to edit and/or alter any selected submission. Please keep a copy of your original submission.


Videos will be accepted on an on-going basis through the pandemic. Entrants may submit by uploading a video to Vimeo, YouTube or other video uploading site and then send the submission's URL to articoathome@whut.org

Please submit your highest quality video file as recommended by the video uploading service you choose, e.g. YouTube, Vimeo, etc.,, Acceptable file formats are: MPEG (.mpg/.mpeg/.m4v), QuickTime Movie (.mov), AVI (.avi), and Windows Media Video (.WMV). Producer particularly recommends MPEG4 (MPG) compression types (CODECS) such as H.264, DivX, Xvid, and AVC.


Final selections may be used in any manner, promotional or otherwise to support the ARTICO production in any and all media and/or technologies now known in perpetuity. Producer is not responsible for lost, damaged or misdirected videos under any circumstances. And all decisions are final and non-appealable.


Those selected will sign general Releases. Releases will include, among other things, a statement that the videos were the exclusive property of the entrant(s) at the time they were submitted. Releases must be obtained from all identifiable persons depicted, seen or heard in the videos, as well as the

person(s) who recorded the video. A parent or guardian must sign the Release forms for minors.
