The Digital Solitude program with its fellowships and the online platform Schlos-spost supported by the State Ministry of Baden-Wuerttemberg for Science, Research and the Arts is intended for journalists, developers/coders, designers, as well as artists and all other creatives and professionals who work on the development of new digital content and formats.

Since opening its doors in 1990, the artist residency Akademie Schloss Solitude has supported approximately 1,300 young artists from more than 100 countries via its fellowship program and enjoys a formidable international reputation as a leading artist residency.

The program offers to digital artists the space and flexibility to develop new ideas and formats, which will be published on or in connection with the online platform Schlosspost, a content focused online platform in English for the Solitude network.

Fellows of this program are not bound to the standard residency requirement of spending at least two-thirds of their residency at Akademie Schloss Solitude.

The jurors base their decisions on the qualitative aspects of work samples submitted by the applicants. There is no legal entitlement to the allocation of a fellowship. The applicant will be informed of the jury’s decision in August/September 2016.

The application period for the Digital Solitude fellowships in 2017 starts on May 1 and runs until June 30, 2016. There is no entry fee for this Digital Art Competition!
