STARTS Prize 2018: Honoring Innovation in Technology, Industry and Society Stimulated by the Arts

Deadline: 2 March 2018

The European Commission, Ars Electronica, BOZAR and Waag Society are seeking applications for its “STARTS Prize 2018” to select the most pioneering collaborations and results in the field of creativity and innovation at the crossings of science and technology with the arts.

Science, Technology and Arts (=STARTS) form a nexus with an extraordinarily high potential for creative innovation. And such innovation is considered to be precisely what’s called for if we’re to master the social, ecological and economic challenges that Europe will be facing in the near future.

Accordingly, the STARTS Prize focuses on artistic works that influence or change the way we look at technology, and on innovative forms of collaboration between the ICT sector and the world of art and culture.

Prize Categories

  • Grand Prize—Artistic Exploration: Awarded for artistic exploration and art works where appropriation by the arts has a strong potential to influence or alter the use, deployment or perception of technology.
  • Grand Prize—Innovative Collaboration: Awarded for innovative collaboration between industry or technology and the arts that opens new pathways for innovation.

Benefits

Two prizes, each with €20,000 prize money, are offered to honor innovative projects at the intersection of science, technology and the arts: one for artistic exploration, and thus projects with the potential to influence or change the way technology is deployed, developed or perceived, and one for innovative collaboration between industry/technology and art/culture in ways that open up new paths for innovation.

Eligibility Criteria

Artists / creative professionals or the researchers / companies involved from throughout the world; STARTS is not limited to citizens of EU-member states.

How to Apply

Applications must be submitted online via given website.
