<nettime-ann> transmediale Awards: Open Web Award - Call for Entries

Dear Nettimers!

This past Thursday at W2, Vancouver's Community Media Arts Society <http://www.creativetechnology.org/>, I had the pleasure to announce, in collaboration with the Mozilla Foundation, the creation and launch of the new 'Open Web Award 2011' - a special third platform for creative excellence alongside the 'transmediale Award 2011' and the 'Vilém Flusser Theory Award 2011'.

The 'Open Web Award' is a new platform aimed at highlighting and promoting radical, creative and innovative art works and projects that:

- are on the web and about the web
- use open source, free, libre or other non-proprietary technology (may they be soft- or hardware)
- incite participation and/or collaboration

They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of open web issues, and those employing the creative use of HTML5 and other developing 'open' technologies will be given specific consideration. The point is to play with both the idea and materiality of the (open) web in ways that spark new thinking and practice.

The winner(s) of the 'Open Web Award 2011' will receive a total prize of 5000 EUR, and be given the opportunity to have 'supported' status on Drumbeat <http://drumbeat.org/>. Beyond the specific 'Open Web Award' criteria, the same rules, conditions and application procedures apply as the 'transmediale Award 2011' <http:// www.transmediale.de/en/awards2011>

The Deadline for Entries to the transmediale 'Open Web Award 2011' is also July 31, 2010 (2400 CEST / UST+2)!

Apologies if you've already received this information via other channels, but we urge to pass this info along to get the strongest, sharpest and most thought provoking submissions and proposals!
