conceived as an open platform for various disciplines at the 
intersection of art, technology, science and society. More than 3,000

reputation as an internationally representative competition honoring 
outstanding works in the cyberarts.

The aim of the competition is to continually keep the Prix Ars 
Electronica updated in line with leading-edge developments in the 
dynamic field of cyberarts.
