Despite recent proclamations that net art is dead (whatever), there is one subset genre that flourishes outside of professionalized or theorized categories: the home page. Multi-media, decorative or text-heavy, home pages vary visually but are usually in the personal if not confessional and hobbyist modes. Overlooked by Googling and threatened with obsolescence by regimented surfing practices or social networks (think Friendster), home pages don't always get the scrutiny or adoration they deserve... until now. Germany-based artist Olia Lialina along with other notable enthusiasts have put together $1000 to award a very interesting personal web page. Submit your own site or one you prize, and the judges are accepting works in Russian, German, Flemish and English. Viva l'amateur! - Rachel Greene
