The 8th call for entries for The Lumen Prize for Art and Technology 2019 now is open and like every year celebrates the very best art created digitally by artists around the world.
The Lumen Prize celebrates the very best art created with technology through a global competition, exhibitions and events worldwide run by Lumen Art Projects. Our annual juried competition draws entries from artists globally and has given away more than US$70,000 in prize money since its launch in 2012. Lumen Art Projects, a not-for-profit based in the UK, is dedicated to providing opportunities for artists who engage with technology globally through links with cultural venues, festivals and institutions globally. The categories are:
• Moving Image,
• Artificial Intelligence,
• Photomonitor Student Award
All art is eligible as long as it engages with technology in some form. Artists can use any equipment, there is no limit.
All works will be reviewed by International Selectors Committee, made up of art and technology specialists, including top curators, writers and academics from around the world. The longlist will then be reviewed by eminent international Jury Panel which will select the finalists and top prize winners. All longlisted artists, finalists and winners are eligible for exhibitions and commissions. Finalists are also eligible for the People’s Choice Award and the Lumen Gold Award and all women finalists are eligible for the Rapoport Award for Women in Art and Technology.
The 2019 finalists will be published online in September and the winners will be announced in London at the 2019 Lumen awards ceremony in October, 2019.
