Subject to fund allocations, the Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art will award two grants (€3,000 each) for artistic works in the field of new media.

With this award, the Edith-Russ-Haus wishes to honour new approaches to media art and support the award-winners with both prize money and an exhibition. The Edith-Russ-Haus for Media Art Grant is intended to promote the careers of emerging media artists in a sustainable way.

Awards will be given to existing works from the broad spectrum of media art, from net-based projects or video art to audio or audio-visual installations.
