The Prix Ars Electronica, initiated in 1987, has earned a reputation as the definitive barometer of trends in the international media art scene. Juries composed of leading experts in their respective fields convene annually to select the most outstanding contemporary works and to honor their creators with Golden Nicas, the “Oscars of media art.” Seven competition categories reflect the diversity of today’s media art: HYBRID ART, COMPUTER ANIMATION / FILM / VFX, INTERACTIVE ART, DIGITAL MUSICS, DIGITAL COMMUNITIES, [THE NEXT IDEA] voestalpine ART AND TECHNOLOGY GRANT, and the u19 – freestyle computing category for Austrian young people.
