Open Web Award 2011

transmediale in collaboration with Mozilla have announced the creation of the new Open Web Award 2011 a special third platform for creative excellence alongside the transmediale Award 2011 and the Vilém Flusser Theory Award 2011.

The transmediale Open Web Award is a new platform for radical, creative and innovative art works and projects that:

> are on the web and about the web
> use open and free technology
> incite participation and/or collaboration

They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of open web issues, and those employing the creative use of HTML5 and other developing 'open' technologies will be given specific consideration. The point is to play with both the idea and materiality of the (open) web in ways that spark new thinking and practice.

The winner(s) of the Open Web Award 2011 will receive a total prize of 5000 EURO, and be given the opportunity to have supported status on Drumbeat <http://drumbeat.org>. Beyond the specific Open Web Award criteria, the same rules, conditions and application procedures apply as the transmediale Award 2011.

The Deadline for Entries for the transmediale Open Web Award 2011 is also July 31, 2010 (2400 CEST / UST+2)
