Since 2014, Prix Net Art has celebrated the current moment of net art and its future. The prize was created by Rhizome and Chronus Art Center in response to a relative scarcity of support and recognition for the field, and to promote public conversation about the crucial but always changing role of the internet in contemporary culture and artistic practice. Awards of $10,000 and $5,000 will be given to two artists who are committed to working online and who represent important forward directions in contemporary net art practice.
For the 2016 edition of Prix Net Art, four judges—Lauren Cornell, Aria Dean, Zhang Ga, and Christiane Paul—will consider a rich field of candidates nominated by the general public. Nominations can be made here through October 31.
