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 participants.

The pixelstorm-award will be announced for the fourth time very soon. 
The deadline for participation will last from Jan 8th 2007 until Jan 
30th 2007. The pricegiving ceremony will take place on Feb 24th in 
two locations in Basel and Zurich, and ? of course ? on the web.

The highlights of the last years, and the recordings of the 
awards-ceremonies can be seen here:
