u19 – CREATE YOUR WORLD reaches out to kids and young people who want to have a lot more say about the world in which they’re going to be spending their future. u19 seeks to encourage youngsters to develop their own ideas and visions, to present them to others and to try them out. The formats designed to make this happen include an annual nationwide idea competition, a festival for kids and young people also held annually, a lineup of tours and workshops offered throughout the year, as well as programs custom-tailored to specific types of schools and all different grades. The grand prizewinner in the Prix category is singled out for recognition with a Golden Nica statuette and €3,000; other outstanding entries are honored with Awards of Distinction, Honorary Mentions and merchandise prizes with a value of €2,000. Entries can be submitted to https://ars.electronica.art/prix/en/. The deadline is March 4th.
