Media art since 1987
Initiated in 1987 by Hannes Leopoldseder, the Prix Ars Electronica has developed into one of the most prestigious media art prizes in the world.
The Prix Ars Electronica is announced anew every year and has thus always been not only an important platform for artists who present their work to an international jury of experts and compete for one of the coveted Golden Nicas.
An important gauge and seismograph of current artistic work at the intersection of art, technology and society, this is also part of the annual Ars Electronica Festival held in Linz, Austria.
