S+T+ARTS Prize Priorities for 2023

The prestigious award’s latest edition features a thematic theme in addition to an extended consortia. Cross-sectoral projects examining the disruptive potential of creative data and media innovation. As well as works probing hybrid formats, ground-breaking technology, or efforts of storytelling in next-generation media, are currently receiving attention. The focus for 2023 is on innovative initiatives. Even though all excellent examples of creative collaborations and artistic explorations in S+T+ARTS are strongly urged to submit their works:

·      That experiment with immersive technology, interactive media, and associated technological advancements; and that demonstrate a fresh aesthetic approach to data.

·      Which show a democratization in the use and application of data, as well as in the development and creation of content in the media environment.

·      That take part in citizen participation, crowdsourcing & co-creation, user-generated material, or metadata.

·      That make clear the advantages and disadvantages of how modern data systems and media interfaces are organized.

·      That display fresh, qualitative approaches as a result of disrupting traditional media, including novel ways in the distinctive development, access, and dissemination of media material and platforms as well as personalized and non-linear storytelling.


·      The emphasis of both prizes is on the creative appropriation and employment of technologies as well as the search for distinctive constellations of collaboration from the S+T+ARTS fields. Two prizes, each with a prize fund of €20,000, are offered to honor innovative projects at the intersection of science, technology, and the arts.

·      Grand Prize for Innovative Collaboration: recognizes unique partnerships between business, technology, and the creative (and artistic) industries that create new opportunities for innovation.

·      The Grand Prize for Artistic Exploration recognizes creative work and study that has the greatest potential to alter how people use, use, or perceive technology.
