We encourage the submission of works that engage with current global challenges such as the pandemic, climate change, rising authoritarianism, exilic and diasporic experiences, precariousness in the labor market, or cultural integration. We hope to open channels for young cultural producers from the region to contribute to global debates and problems related to education, sustainability, discrimination and racism, illness and care, and social organization.

The competition will award a prize worth 750 € in three broadly defined artistic categories: text, visual and sound

Art works may include but are not limited to digital story, photograph, video, song, sound installation, clip, video game, podcast, digital drawing, 3D modeling, animation, web and app design.

DEADLINE

31.10.2021

Eligible are young digital artists - 25 years of age or younger - who are from the Middle East, either living in the region or in diasporic communities.
