The world’s longest-running media art competition is looking for outstanding works and projects in the categories “Computer Animation,” “Digital Communities,” “Interactive Art +” and “u19 – create your world.” Winners will receive the prestigious Golden Nica awards and several thousand euros in prize money, as well as a prominent place at the Ars Electronica Festival.
In addition to the Prix Ars Electronica, today is also the opening of the “Ars Electronica Award for Digital Humanity”, which is made possible by the Austrian Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs.
