VIDA 11.0 rewards works of art developed with artificial life technologies
and related disciplines: robotics, artificial intelligence, etc. We  are
looking for works of art with emerging behaviours, which evolve over time,
react with their environment and seem to have a life of their own. VIDA
11.0 is searching for  projects that relate technology with biology and
that research the synthetic characteristics of modern life.

In previous editions, prizes have been awarded to artistic projects
created with robots, avatars, recursive chaotic algorithms, knowbots,
cellular automata, computer viruses, virtual ecologies that evolve with
user interaction, interactive architectures, augmented reality pieces and
works that explore the social aspects of A-life.

A total of &#8364;40,000 will be awarded to the three projects selected by the
jury: First prize: &#8364;18,000, Second prize: &#8364;14,000, Third prize: &#8364;8,000.
The winning pieces may be exhibited at Fundación Telefónica´s Virtual
Museum and in the exhibitions related to art and new technologies it
organises or takes part in.

Works of art submitted must not be more than two years old. This enables
the competition to keep updated and aware of the last technological trends
in the field of artificial life.
