Entries are now invited to this year’s NEM Art Contest (October 16 – 18, Istanbul).

2012 NEMart Contest
The 2012 NEM Art Contest firmly establishes the NEMart as a high profile fixture in the NEM Summit programme.
This year, we will build on the success of the previous two competitions to invite applications for real demonstrators/proof of concepts which clearly show the exciting opportunities which exist when technology and art/design conjoin. Interactive entertainment experiences, new design-led applications for social well-being, novel ways of telling stories using digital media –
this is an open call for you to submit your vision in demo form of anything which pushes the boundaries of art/design/technology possibilities.
We particularly welcome those applications which show partnership potential, although it is also equally acceptable to submit solo.
We also especially welcome those submissions which have not been demonstrated before.However, we will not exclude those which have previously been demonstrated in a public context.
Entries will be split into the following 5 categories:

About the NEM Art contest
“NEM Art contest” had been launched at the attention of artists from Europe and the rest of the world making innovative use of networked and electronic media technologies (based on texts, pictures, music, videos; referring to the most advanced – and whenever relevant – networked technologies: 3D, virtual reality, web, communications networks, etc.).
The contest is looking for innovative content and experiences which make the most of today’s available NEM technologies -at the crossroads of multimedia and networking technologies – and which illustrate how these technologies benefit everyday life and business alike and may inspire tomorrow’s applications, or which are simply fresh and fun to discover!
Rationale and objectives of the “NEM art and design” contest
The first “NEMart contest” was organised in 2010 in order to foster innovation in the NEM area through cooperation between artists and scientists. The initiative was successful with many interesting entries submitted by organizations and individuals from Europe and other parts of the world, following the release by NEM of an open Call for Art. 17 entries were shortlisted and invited to exhibit in a dedicated area of the 2010 NEM Summit exhibition. 5 were selected by the jury to share a prize of €5,000 awarded at the event’s closing ceremony courtesy of the event’s two main sponsors (BBC and Technicolor).
