Special attention goes to community-related &#39;net.art&#39;. &#39;Digital Communities&#39; spotlights bold and inspired innovations impacting human coexistence, bridging the geographical as well as gender-based digital divide and cultural conflicts, sustaining cultural diversity and the freedom of artistic expression or creating outstanding social software and enhancing accessibility of technological-social infrastructure. This category showcases the political and artistic potential of digital and networked systems and is thus designed as a forum for the consideration of a broad spectrum of projects, programs, artworks, initiatives and phenomena in which social and artistic innovation is taking place, as it were, in real time. A Golden Nica, two Awards of Distinction and up to 12 Honorary Mentions will be awarded in the Digital Communities category in 2007.

Ars Electronica and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute Media.Art.Research (media.lbg.ac.at) are pleased to announce the establishment of a prize for outstanding theoretical work on the subject of media art to be awarded in conjunction with the Prix Ars Electronica. The Prix Ars Electronica Media.Art.Research Award includes a Euro 5,000 cash stipend. The 2007 theme is &#39;Net-based Artforms.&#39; Of particular interest this year are theoretical analyses of the medial configuration and history of artistic interventions in electronic networks, elaborations on the social aspects of artistic encounters in and with the Internet, as well as discussions of research being done by scholars of art history on these media art genres.

Please feel free to forward this to all interesting/ed parties.

best regards
