LACDA INTERNATIONAL JURIED COMPETITION
Curator of Contemporary Art, L.A. County Museum of Art (LACMA)
Director, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art
Enter our juried competition for digital art, digital photography, video and new media. All styles of artwork and photography where digital processes of any kind were integral to their creation are acceptable. We accept digital art stills of any kind, digital photogaphy, short experimental time-based video, video loops, 3D and all other digital video animations, mobile media and interactive new media or internet art (net.art) works of any kind.
The competition is international, and open to all geographic locations.
Video, interactive and new media are accepted by DVD/CD. Internet art (net.art) entries are viewed at their original URL. Still image entries are acceped by jpeg upload. Still image winners are printed by the gallery for exhibition to eliminate the need for shipping, especially for international artists.
The selected winners will be exhibited as the central focus of the "DigitalArt.LA" expo in a large group exhibit at the LACDA gallery. The show will be widely promoted and will include a reception for the artists. The expo runs August 14-16 (concurrent with and promoted by the Downtown Art Walk and the Downtown Film Festival). The winners exhibit will remain in the gallery August 14-September 6.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to exhibit alongside top institutions and have your work viewed by a LACMA curator!
All entries are given special consideration for exhibiting at LACDA and outside exhibitions where we are featured. Artists participating in our competitions form the pool of artists from which we select the vast majority of those featured at LACDA and are often considered by our associated network of galleries and curators. Proceeds from the competition support these gallery programs and the DigitalArt.LA expo. Juror Rex Bruce has curated and participated in over 75 exhibits since the founding of LACDA in 2004 and is internationally recognized as a leader and expert in the field.
