The next Open Call for the Prix Ars Electronica will start in January 2023. Visit us again!

In 2023, Ars Electronica is accepting submissions for prize consideration in the following categories:

You have two possibilities to submit your work: you can rethink your project and consider if it’s appropriate for one of the other categories that are being staged in 2023; otherwise, you can wait to submit it in 2024. (Four categories are henceforth biennial: Digital Musics & Sound Art and Artificial Intelligence & Life Art will be staged every two years, alternating with Interactive Art + and Digital Communities.)

The Ars Electronica Festival does not issue an open call for submissions. However, many projects are chosen from among those submitted to the Prix Ars Electronica. Our recommendation: submit your project for Prix Ars Electronica prize consideration!

The submission phase for the 2023 Prix Ars Electronica will start in January 2023! Then, you can submit your project to our online database. The u19-create your world category is open all year round (the current submission deadline for the upcoming jury session and the link to submit can be found here: https://ars.electronica.art/createyourworld/en/prix/).

No. Submitting an entry to the Prix Ars Electronica is free of charge.

Yes. You can submit your work in German; nevertheless, Ars Electronica recommends submitting it in English because many of our jurors don’t speak German. In the u19-create your world category, the jury is German-speaking.

Additional info about the required documentation is available in each category’s submission details [Checklist]

Please consider the fact that the jurors read the project description very carefully to get insights into your work. In the first part of the project description, you could provide an overview of your work. Then you could go into detail about your project and elaborate on your artistic concept. It’s important to keep in mind that the project description isn’t part of the artwork; rather, it constitutes an explanation of your work.

No. To submit an entry, you must first register online and submit all mandatory information online.

If you would like to send in additional material pertaining to your entry via post, then please prominently label it with your name and the project title. Please mail it by the submission deadline (date of postmark is determinative) to: Ars Electroncia Linz GmbH & Co KG, Ars-Electronica-Straße 1, 4040 Linz, Austria. Code: Prix “Category (e.g. Interactive Art +)”
