Sunshine Coast Council today announced the closing date for the inaugural Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2014 New Media category has been extended to August 11.
Community Programs Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2014 New Media category was presented by Analogue Digital and the University of the Sunshine Coast with prizes valued at $15,000.
“This exciting New Media category is open to any emerging artist aged 15 to 30 years, in the first five years of their practise, who resides in the Sunshine Coast Local Government Area.
“We have extended the closing date for entries until 5pm on Monday, August 11, to allow young artists more time to complete their new media artwork.
“With an application fee of just $20 for any new media artwork such as a digital projection, moving image, still digital image, digital photograph, soundscape or new media installation − this is a fantastic opportunity not-to-be-missed.”
Prizes for the New Media category include:
a mentorship from Earthbase Productions valued at $3,000
a $2,500 public art project and mentoring for a selected entrant, presented by James Birrell Design Lab
in-kind design and web promotional advice provided by Analogue Digital for a selected entrant and the opportunity to showcase at Analogue Digital Brisbane 2015 for a selected applicant, valued at $2,500
