Mozilla is funding art about online privacy and security and as part of its Creative Media Grants program, has organised an art competiton seeking artists, media producers, and storytellers who share that belief — and who use their art to make a difference in raising awareness about surveillance, tracking, and hacking to partecipate.
They seek to support producers creating work on the web, about the web, and for a broad public. Producers should share Mozilla’s concern that the private communications of internet citizens are increasingly being monitored and monetized by state and corporate actors.
As they move to an era of ubiquitous and connected digital technology, Mozilla sees a vital role for media produced in the public interest that advocates for internet citizens being informed, empowered and in control of their digital lives.
Imagine: An open-source browser extension that reveals how much Facebook really knows about you. Or artwork and journalism that examine how women’s personal data is tracked and commodified online.
The audiences for the submitted work should be primarily in Europe and Latin America. However, producers from all parts of the world are eligible to submit applications and seek funding.
Mozilla encourages applications from producers at any stage of their career, producing in any format that is available on the web.
There is no entry fee for this competition!
It's free to enter!
Open to anyone primarily based in Europe and Latin America. While this does not preclude makers from other regions from applying, content and approach must be relevant to one of these two regions.
