Call for Entries is now open Deadline for entries: 31st July 2012 The winners and 50 short-listed entries will tour to galleries and venues around the world in Spring 2013
Winners will be announced in October 2012 The Lumen Prize is the world's first global prize for fine art created digitally and invites entries from digital artists around the world to take part in this exciting new competition.
50 winning entries will be selected by a judge of leading art world academics and professionals who will be looking for work of exceptional merit and originality.
4 prize winners will share a cash prize fund of $5000 and the winning entries will be exhibited on The Lumen Prize international tour to venues around the world including London, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Digitally-created art – long on the periphery of fine art – is now coming of age. "One only had to look at the crowds mobbing the Royal Academy's recent Hockney exhibition to see that people can love art created on a screen as much as a canvas," says Lumen CEO, Carla Rapoport, a director of Treberfydd Foundation, the social enterprise launching the award.
The Lumen Prize is backed by professionals with experience from The British Museum, Sotheby's Institute of Art, New York University, National Portrait Gallery, The Financial Times and includes Lord Stevenson, former Chancellor of the University of the Arts and Ivor Davies, President of the Royal Cambrian Academy.
Proceeds from the competition, after costs, will go to support the vital work of Peace Direct, a global charity that supports local peace builders in conflict zones worldwide.
