Grand prize of the European Commission honoring innovation in technology, industry and society stimulated by the arts

On behalf of the European Commission, Ars Electronica hereby issues an open call for entries to a competition that will determine the first recipients of STARTS, prestigious and – with two €20,000 grants – highly endowed awards. Expressly encouraged are innovative projects at the interface of science, technology and art.

The “STARTS Prize” aims to showcase and celebrate visions and achievements at the interface between innovation and creation – driven by both science/technology and the arts as well as to honour the inspiring individuals and teams behind these achievements. By opening it to artists, creative professionals, researchers and companies from all over the world, the STARTS Prize targets to expand everyone’s horizon in order to work on new ideas and showcase best-practice examples. This international prize will highlight Europe’s power as a breeding ground for innovation and creative excellence.

Prizes for artistic research and collaborative innovation

Two €20,000 cash grants will be awarded in conjunction with the STARTS Prize 2016: one for artistic research and thus for projects that have the potential to influence and change the mode of application, development and perception of technologies; and one for cooperative ventures teaming up industry/technology and art/culture in ways that open up new paths for innovation.
