SHARE PRIZE 2013 - Real Time | Real Space

Call for Entries

Piemonte Share is announcing a new edition of the Share Prize, the international competition designed to discover, promote and support art in the digital age.

Entries for the Share Prize can be submitted from June 20-August 20, 2013, by completing the entry form on their website:

This year, Share Festival will be shining the spotlight on how communications have become simultaneous and geolocalized in contemporary cities, sharpening its focus and critique onto the integration of digital networks in the urban environment. Share Festival sees artists not just as aesthetic messengers but as social agents, who use networks to change the way we think about media and relational space.
"The artistic realm is overlapped with the physical, urban world to explore a new dimension in which art can redirect the social and political leanings of networks, communities and artists into performances. Instead of taking humans into virtual space, digital technology has enhanced the way we interact with others and with the physical world. Today, the map is no longer a representation of the territory; rather, it incorporates it. How do people shape, and how are they shaped by, the integrated platform created between data and location?"

An international jury will short-list six projects for the prize, who will be selected to take part in the 9th Share Festival, to be held in Torino from November 8-17, 2013, at the Regional Museum of Natural Science. The names of the short-listed finalists will be announced by the beginning of September 2013.
