PWA Dummy Awards. Deadline: June 30, 2018

PWA Dummy Awards 2018

In collaboration with Kvadrat, Idea Books, Reflektor, and European Photography.

Submissions now open!

Welcome to the first Photobook Week Aarhus Dummy Awards, where book makers have the opportunity to be discovered by international publishers and experts, to be exhibited at international festivals and to win a complete book publishing! The same as all the other dummy awards out there? Yes and No.

Yes, because the first phase has been held very similar, so you can recycle your PDFs and Videos and send them in at no cost.

No, because we have two juries. The first one is comprised of experts around the globe who will choose 12 candidates from your digital submissions. We will send these 12 dummies in a box around the globe, so the jury members can see them, and then choose 3 finalists. These finalists will be invited to Aarhus to pitch their book projects to the second jury. The winner will receive the Award, which consist in the production, publishing and international distribution of the book.

Too confusing? Let’s go step by step!

Step One

Submit your Dummy as a PDF, together with a video, until June 30, 2018. Submission is free of charge.

Step Two

From these digital entries, an International Preselection Jury will put together a shortlist of 12 candidates, who will send their dummies to Aarhus.

Step Three

PWA will then send these 12 dummies to each jury member of the Award Jury, who will have a couple of days to look at the books before sending the box on to the next member. Once everybody has seen the dummies, the box returns to Aarhus, and the jury votes again, to find out the three finalists.

Step Four

The three finalists will be invited to come to Aarhus during the festival, and present their books to the Award Jury, and the general public. The final jury meeting will be held on October 6, and the winner will be presented that same evening, in a Gala.

All 12 shortlisted dummies will be exhibited at the Photobook Week Aarhus, at the Kvadrat showroom, and other selected venues.

Step Five

The winning book will be designed and produced with the help of three tutors. It will be published & distributed internationally by Photobook Week Aarhus, Reflektor and Idea Books. 50 books will be hand-delivered to experts around the globe. Selected finalists will be featured in the magazine European Photography and be exhibited at PWA 2019.

 

How to Submit

  • Submit your dummy as a PDF not bigger than 15Mb by email to pwa.dummy[at]gmail.com
  • Include a CV and bio of between 800 and 1200 characters.
  • If needed, specify any technical characteristics of the book.
  • You are welcome to include a video of the photobook if you have one already.

STARTS Prize 2018 Call – Art & Technology. Deadline: Mar. 2, 2018

STARTS Prize 2018 Open Call
Grand prize of the European Commission honoring Innovation in Technology, Industry and Society stimulated by the Arts

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.

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.

Submission phase ends on March 2, 2018!
