Since its inception in 1987, the Prix Ars Electronica, the coveted award for cyberarts, has been an annual barometer of currents in digital creativity and has repeatedly proven to be a trailblazer in the discovery of artistic innovation. Forty internationally renowned experts evaluate thousands of submissions in the categories Computer Animation/Film/VFX, Digital Musics, Interactive Art, Hybrid Art, and Digital Communities, as well as the u19-freestyle computing competition for young people. A further prize, the Media.Art.Research Award, will also be presented.
