'Think Ahead! Open platform' is a contest organised by the Netherlands Media Art Institute on the occasion of its '30 anniversary'. It aims at fostering cooperation between cultural agents and artists with regard to an unrealized art project/concept/ idea exploring new territories and ideas in the field of media art and digital culture.

'Think Ahead! Open platform' invites artists, researchers and hackers active in the digital culture and based in the Netherlands, to present ideas that are currently under construction. After selection, up to 16 projects will be presented on the 'Think Ahead! Open Platform' during the open house weekend. Each participant will have 10 minutes to present the plan to the public and the jury, be it for instance a research projects culminating in publications, artworks, events, installations, performances, software/hardware tool for cultural purposes, online/offline publication or platform, etc. The key criteria for selection are innovation, authenticity, and sustainability. The project must fall within the digital art practices and be based on creative commons or libre software/hardware.

A jury of experts and representatives of some of the key media organization in the Netherlands will grant the most compelling projects with 2000 Euro enabling, and will also provide expert advise and technical assistance for the further development or actual realisation of the concept. The members of the jury might also consider to support with their expertise other concepts presented in this initiative if they find them interesting.
