Call for entries: VIDA 13.0 Art and artificial life international awards

DEADLINE EXTENDED: 10th of November 2010

Fundación Telefonica announces the VIDA 13.0 Art & Artificial Life 
International Competition, which for the last twelve years has awarded 
prizes for artistic projects using technological mediums offering 
innovative approaches to research into life and artificial life.

At a time when the notion of life is once again located in an uncertain 
domain, a wide range of artistic initiatives come together to illustrate 
and investigate this phenomenon; they examine the impact on the 
collective conscience and the way it is manifested in cultural, 
technological and social thought.

Over the last decade, in the same formal space, VIDA has been bringing 
together interdisciplinary projects that respond to this situation. By 
means of formal strategies that defy the boundaries between existing 
practices, these projects offer new ways of reflecting on what we 
understand by life and artificial life.

There are two categories to the competition:

FINISHED PROJECTS
In this category VIDA 13.0 will award prizes to artistic ALife projects 
developed after 2008.

The sum of 40,000 Euros will be shared between the projects selected by 
the jury:
- First Prize: 18,000 Euros,
- Second Prize: 14,000 Euros
- Third Prize: 8,000 Euros.
In addition seven honourable mentions will be awarded.


PRODUCTION INCENTIVES
In this category VIDA 13.0 helps to fund artistic ALife projects that 
have not yet been produced. This is aimed at citizens or residents of 
countries comprising Latin America, Spain and Portugal. The sum of 
40,000 Euros will be shared between the selected projects.
