MIC Special Prize 2020 0 – 19 Years

As part of the Prix Ars Electronica “u19 – create your world”, a special prize will be awarded in 2020 – with the support of MIC – managing international customs & trade compliance – for innovative ideas and projects in the fields of IT, programming, game design, Web and Internet. The prize is endowed with 1,000 € and is aimed at all young creative minds who enjoy programming and developing new things.
We are looking for ideas, concepts or finished projects that deal with the world of tomorrow! How will the IT sector develop in the future? Which problems have to be solved? What does IT have to do with climate change? How will artificial intelligence develop in the future?
“Actively shaping the world of tomorrow also means dealing with it now. We’re very pleased to be able to sponsor the Prix Ars Electronica “u19 – create your world” this year, because an active, creative and critical young generation is important to us. We very much welcome the fact that Ars Electronica, as an internationally renowned festival, is also focusing on the young generation with this special award. As a leading international software company based in Linz, we provide solutions for customs clearance and trade compliance for multinational companies. With these solutions we shape the global movement of goods now and in the future. Creative minds that are innovative and willing to take responsibility are important for our society.”
