The Lumen Prize Exhibition:  Call for Entries

Lumen PrizeWho? The Lumen Prize Exhibition is an annual award for digitally created fine art. In it’s first year the four selected winners shared US$5000 of prizes and the jury-selected final 50 went on a global tour that visited galleries and arts venues in Cardiff, London, Riga, Shanghai, and Hong Kong.

When? Call for entries is now open and closes July 31. The top 100 works selected for the Lumen Online Gallery will go on display in September with a public vote for the People’s Choice Prize. The 50 works selected for the Lumen Prize Exhibition will be announced late September. A Winner’s Show of these 50 works will open in Cardiff, Wales on October 1.  The top four winners will be announced on October 10. The second stop of the Lumen global tour will be at NYIT Gallery 61, at 61 W. 61st St, New York City, in November. It will continue to London and Hong Kong in 2014.

What? The jury panel consists of Gordon Young, renowned Public Space artist; Tessa Jackson, CEO of Iniva, Institute of International Visual Arts; Tom Cheshire, Associate Editor, Wired Magazine; Douglas Dodd, Senior Curator, Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Yashodhara Dalmia, New Delhi-based art historian, author and curator; Barbara Isenberg, award-winning LA-based arts critic and writer; Tommy Ingberg, 2012 Lumen Prize Winner, and Yang Yongliang, Shanghai based digital artist whose work has been collected by the British Museum.
