The Lumen Prize is an annual award for digital art. Any art created by a digital device using proprietary, open-source or creatively-coded software is eligible. Entries using animation techniques, CGI and moving-image software to produce 3D, interactive and time-based works with or without sound are all welcome. Works which use gaming technology, VR, AR, a website or an app are also eligible for entry. Lumen will award prizes in the following categories: Lumen Prize Gold Award ($3000), Moving Image, Still Image, 3D/Sculpture, Interactive, Games Art, Mixed Reality and Web-based art (all $1000). The Founder’s Award ($750) is given for work which uniquely engages audiences and the People’s Choice Award ($250) is chosen via an open ballet of the longlist. Winners and shortlisted works will also be exhibited in London, Shanghai, New York City and Caerphilly Castle Wales.
