WANTED: Female Media Artists! Annually since 1987, the Prix Ars Electronica has issued a worldwide open call to men and women working in media art. But what about the percentages of female media artists who have submitted projects for prize consideration and been singled out for recognition? How have these ratios developed over the competition’s 30-year history? And for that matter, how well have women been represented on Prix juries over this time? The Prix Ars Electronica staff has taken a close-up look at this situation. You can read about their findings in the latest our Ars Electronica Blog.

We look forward to your submission and wish you every success!
