Last week, I posted a Call for Applications for transmediale's Award, and now the annual art and digital culture festival has just announced a new award in collaboration with Mozilla, the Open Web Award 2011. You can read more about this opportunity below, or visit the original call. Deadline for applications is July 21, 2010.
The transmediale Open Web Award is a new platform for radical, creative and innovative art works and projects that: are on the web and about the web; that use open source, free, libre or other non-proprietary technology (may they be soft- or hardware); and that incite participation
They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of open web issues, and those employing the creative use of HTML5 and other developing ‘open’ technologies will be given specific consideration. The point is to play with both the idea and materiality of the (open) web in ways that spark new thinking and practice.
The winner(s) of the Open Web Award 2011 will receive a total prize of 5000 EURO, and be given the opportunity to have supported status on Drumbeat http://drumbeat.org. Beyond the specific Open Web Award criteria, the same rules, conditions and application procedures apply as the transmediale Award 2011 http://www.transmediale.de/en/awards2011.
