Smile Prix Ars Electronica (web site competition)

Hi all,

A couple of years ago I was contacted by Prix Ars Electronica about one of my web pages. (They invited me to enter the competition with my 'They Died in Florida' page at www.yuckles.com/fldead.htm.)

Anyway, this is a real competition, with money prizes. I just received my annual notification email from them, so thought I'd pass it (snipped and tucked a bit) along to you in case you'd like to check it out.

Dear Sir/ Madame

The Prix Ars Electronica 2001 marks the 15th edition of the competition for cyberarts, which is organized by the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF), Upper Austrian Regional Studio, in conjunction with the Ars Electronica Festival. From the start, the Prix Ars Electronica has been conceived as an open platform for various disciplines in the field of digital media design at the intersection of technology, art, science and society. Accordingly, over the course of the years, it has repeatedly been
renewed, in order to be able to take the rapid developments in the realm of information technologies into account.

The Prix Ars Electronica 2001 is announced internationally for the categories of Net Vision / Net Excellence, Interactive Art, Digital Musics, Computer Animation/Visual Effects. In addition, there is also a competition category for young people under the age of 19 in Austria: Cybergeneration - u19 freestyle computing. The international juries will award 6 x 3 money prizes and 6x up to 12 Honorary Mentions.

The total prize money for the Prix Ars Electronica 2001 amounts to Euro 100.000 (US$ 89,700). Selected works of all categories will be presented to the public in the exhibition Cyberarts 2001 at the O.K Center for Contemporary Art during the Ars Electronica Festival.

You will find detailed information on each category, the names of the Jury members, the competition regulations and all information you need to register online under: http://prixars.orf.at. Deadline for entries is April 7, 2001 (postmarked)!

And in case anyone is concerned http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif I'm not affiliated with this organization in any way. Just thought it might be fun to see if any of the geekfolk here at the village would like to participate in this competition.

And it's fun to surf their web site to check out the winners from years past. There are links to some wonderful arts and sciences sites.
