experimenta commission call out

by http://www.experimenta.org/

Experimenta is pleased to announce the commencement of our next commission round in preparation for Experimenta’s 5th International Biennial of Media Art launching in September 2012.

Commissioning new work by Australian media artists is fundamental to Experimenta’s program. Through the commissioning process, we support artists in the creation of new projects including interactive, screen based, sound, public, transmedial, online artworks and beyond. Experimenta commissions provide a significant opportunity for both emerging and mid-career Australian artists to gain professional, creative and technical development, with the required financial support, to realise innovative works of art that engage and thrill the imaginations of our wide audiences.

Projects supported will be funded up to $8,000.
