Deadline: June 1st, 2016
Now in it’s fifth year, The Lumen Prize celebrates the very best art created digitally by artists around the world. Its goal is to celebrate the power and potential of this exciting genre through an annual competition and global tour of works selected by an eminent panel of judges.
This year’s categories are Moving Image, Still Image, Interactive, 3D/Sculpture, Mixed Reality, Games, and Web-based art. Any art created by a digital device using proprietary, open-source or creatively-coded software. Entries using animation techniques, CGI and moving-image software to produce 3D, interactive and time-based works with or without sound are all welcome. Works which use gaming technology, VR, AR, a website or an app are also eligible for entry. All those selected for the long list will also be eligible for the People’s Choice award and the Founder’s Prize.
Work must be created, at least in part, on tablets, digital cameras, smartphones or computers. Traditional work can be part of the creative process, but we do not accept digitised versions of traditional work.
The cost is the same price as last year with two entries for USD $45.
In 2016, Artists will be competing for prizes worth USD $11,000. Shorlisted and winning works will form the 2016/2016 global tour which kicks off in autumn 2016. They will also be featured on the Lumen Prize Gallery and in Lumen’s annual printed catalogue. Shorlisted and winning artists will also be eligible to participate in seminars, symposiums and events throughout the year.
In autumn 2016, Lumen launches its fifth annual global tour, exhibiting the winners and shortlisted works in London, Shanghai, New York City and Caerphilly Castle Wales. Details of the tour will be published in June, 2016. The tour will also include one-night Lumen Highlight events in London, Swansea and Cardiff.
