The Lumen Prize Exhibition, an international prize and global tour for digital fine art, has opened the call for entries for its 2014 prize.
All forms of digitally created art are welcome, and in the past Lumen has exhibited work ranging from photo-montage and manipulation, to iPad drawings, interactive art, web art, digital sculpture, animation and more.
As well as a cash fund of $5750, this year the Prize is launching two new award categories; Creative Coding and the Animate Award. These awards, with a prize of $250 a piece, are added to the existing prizes:
- The Lumen Prize Gold ($3000),
- Lumen Prize Silver ($1000), and Bronze ($750),
- the People’s Choice Award ($250) and
- The Founder’s Prize ($250).
The 25 exhibition works, which will be selected by an eminent jury panel of art experts including Bruce Wands, the Founding Chair of BFA Computer Art Department at the School of Visual Arts, New York City and Doug Dodds, Senior Curator at the V&A, will travel to Cardiff, London, New York City, Athens and Amsterdam.
As well as accepting work from any where in the world – last year 700 entries were received from 45 countries – Lumen contributes a percentage of its entry fee to Peace Direct, which supports peace builders globally.
The call for entries is open from 1st April to 30th June 2014.
