The NEM Art & Design Competition
is an opportunity for Innovative Technologists and Artists from Europe to submit their own creations, utilizing new technologies such as Immersive (Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality), Artificial Intelligence & Machine
Learning, Digital Manufacturing (e.g. 3D Printing), Internet of Things and Blockchain / Smart Contracts to illustrate how life and creative businesses can benefit from emerging technologies, inspiring new applications for tomorrow, and developing new opportunities for imaginative creativity.
Are you a technology geek, an artist, a pair of artists & technologists, a graphical designer, or just someone interested by 3D and virtual worlds, by the Internet and other communications networks, by music and images? This contest is for you!
Submit or illustrate your creation through a video, illustrator or any other animated virtual/real content, a picture and text not later than 31 October 2017 to NEMart([at])nem-initiative.org (and contact us at this address should you have any questions or need any further information). Keep in mind that your work should be easily made available on a website (through a video or any other means).
You will be informed before 8th November 2017 if the NEM Jury accepts your creation. In this case it will be highlighted on the NEM Initiative website and will be displayed in the exhibition area of the 2017 NEM Summit to which you will be invited. The Summit will be an opportunity for those selected to showcase their creations, along with an announcement of the NEM Art & Design Competition overall winner for 2017 (a prize of 3000 euros to be shared by awarded candidates). The selected pieces (together with details about their authors) will be given a strong visibility on the NEM Initiative website for the next year.
