The International Pixelstorm-Award is a digital competition, in which
all submissions are visible immediately on the web.
When the award is announced, the platform www.pixelstorm-award.ch is
usually open for submissions during three weeks. Within this
timespan, participants are invited to upload their works. After a
short check, the submissions are published online.
A large number of designers and artists from all areas of the world
compete with each other and submit entries every year. The
intermediate result of the competition is always visible and
encourages more people to participate. Even while the platform is
open, the pixel-community will start evaluating the submissions, and
electing their own audience award.
The main price however ? the golden pixel ? is assigned by an
international jury and given to the winners during the pricegiving
ceremony. The ceremony is broadcasted on the Web through several
Webcams and an online chat.
The pixelstorm-award is an invention of Andres Wanner. The
association "Friends of the pixelstorm" ? a group of alumni of the
Basel School of Design ? is organizing it about once every year. The
pixelstorm-award is a noncommercial event that tries to depend on a
minimum amount of finance and strongly relies on the enthusiasm of
The pixelstorm-award will be announced for the fourth time very soon.

30th 2007. The pricegiving ceremony will take place on Feb 24th in
two locations in Basel and Zurich, and ? of course ? on the web.
