Call for participation: UNESCO Digital Arts Award 2005

Young artists from around the world are invited to take part in this year's
award devoted to the theme of "Cities and creative media".  Organized in
collaboration with Art Center Nabi, the Award would be delivered to
non-realized project proposals in order to embrace a wider audience of
creators, who have the innovative artistic ideas but not necessarily the means.

The call specifically aims at encouraging young emerging artists to
cultivate new forms of expressions using new media and technology in
reflecting on how urban spaces and city environments could be transformed
into creative outlets.

The submission deadline is 14 September 2005.  All project proposals should
be submitted online at the official website of submission
(http://www.nabi.or.kr/unesco_award), where participants will also be able
to find further detailed information (description of sub-themes, general
guidelines, submission criteria, etc).  All submissions should be in English.

The total prize money is US $10,000, which would be divided into and given
to more than one laureate, in some cases a group of artists.  In addition,
the Nabi center (Seoul, Republic of Korea) is organizing a "special honorary
mention" category to the Award, targeting realized projects that could be
re-embodied within the urban context of the city Seoul.

The award-winning projects would be selected by an international jury,
assembled on this occasion representing the five geo-cultural regions
(Africa, Arab States, Asia/Pacific, Europe/North America, and Latin
