Liedts-Meesen Foundation is hosting the New Technological Art Award (NTAA) 2019 competition and invites submissions by artists worldwide.
NTAA’s mission is to expand the scope of contemporary artistic creations and traditional media with works using contemporary and new technologies in an original and intelligent way: treatment of sounds and light, use of new media, application of innovative evolutions in communications, telecommunications and broadcasting, centered on the world of information, communication, and computers and interaction. These descriptions are in no way restrictive and should be interpreted in the broadest way possible.
A cash award of 5,000 Euro will be allocated to a work and to its creator. Moreover, the jury reserves the right to award an honorable mention to an artist. There will also be a public prize and a prize of the European Commission.
This international competition is open to all age groups and to all nationalities. Artists can present their candidacy for one art work less than two years old at the time of its submission, but which may already have been exhibited. English is the working language.
There is no artist fee. Costs regarding transport, accommodation and installation will be reimbursed by the organization.
The submitted work may have been exhibited previously, but the jury reserves the right to exclude creations that turn out to be not realizable within the limits of the practical possibilities of the Liedts-Meesen Foundation, keeping in mind that the works will be displayed during the exhibition.
The 20 projects selected by the jury will be rendered public at the official website in June 2019. The exhibition is scheduled for 2–24 November, 2019.
The competition winners will be announced at the final day of the exhibition.
