NEW YORK, NY.- The inaugural NOVA New Media Interactive Art Prize has been announced by the Beijing Contemporary Art Foundation and the Big House Contemporary Art Center, Wuhan, China. The NOVA Prize seeks to identify a visionary artist who incorporates new media and interactive methods in their work. The Prize is dedicated to uniting artistic concepts with future-oriented technologies, facilitating communication between artists and global audiences.

The juried competition is open to artists around the world. The call-for-entries for the 2018 award is available at through July 30, 2018. The winner will receive a cash prize of $16,000 and a three-city expenses-paid exhibition tour beginning at the 2018 Prix Ars Electronica Festival in Austria, traveling to Big House Contemporary Art Center in Wuhan, then to New York. After the jury reviews the digital applications, a winner will be announced on August 30, 2018. The NOVA New Media Interactive Art Prize will be awarded annually.

Collaborating institutions for the NOVA Prize include some of the world’s most innovative art and cultural institutions, foundations, and art academies. The seven-person jury includes leading artists and contemporary art curators from the U.S., China, Austria, and Germany.

“We are initiating this prize to support emerging talents and to offer contemporary art experiences and education for the public,” said Cui Qiao, president of the Beijing Art Foundation, a publicly-funded foundation and cultural think tank in China focusing on the development of contemporary arts. “The NOVA Prize aims to inspire and encourage emerging artists to explore the intersection of art and technology and redefine the two disciplines.”
