STARTS Prize by the European Commission Ars Electronica

STARTS Prize by the European Commission Ars Electronica

Description

Appointed by the European Commission, Ars Electronica, BOZAR and Waag Society are launching a prize 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. This follows the launch of a new activity in the European Commission named STARTS: Innovation at the nexus of Science, Technology, and 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. The role of artists thus is no longer seen to be just about propagating scientific and technological knowledge and skills among the general public but much more as a kind of catalyst that can inspire and trigger innovative processes. The artistic practice of creative exploration and experimental appropriation of new technologies has a wide reaching potential to contribute to the development of new products and new economic, social and business models. 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.

Eligibility

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

Award

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.

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.

Application

  • All submissions must be made online. The submission platform (Web address: starts-prize.aec.at/call) will be online January 11th, 2017 and will stay up until March 3rd, 2017.
  • Every submitted project must be, at the time of its submission, either totally completed or far enough along for the jury to be able to assess its quality and the likelihood of it being successfully implemented. The same applies to collaborative arrangements—at the time they’re submitted, they must already be up-and-running and in the implementation stage. No consideration will be given to entries that are purely concepts, ideas or proposals for collaboration.
  • Projects should not be older than two years or have to show a significant update or further development within the last two years.
  • There is no fee to enter the STARTS Prize 2017 competition.
  • Every submission to the STARTS Prize competition can also be entered for Prix Ars Electronica prize consideration and vice versa. In other words, it’s possible for a single project to win both the STARTS Prize 2017 as well as a Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica grand prize. How does this work? It’s totally easy—at the end of the respective online submission, simply check the appropriate box!
