After six successful competitions, we will celebrate the 7th AppArtAward this year. Once again, the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Cyberforum e.V. and their partners are looking for the best artwork in app format.

The AppArtAward is a first, internationally: Since 2011, it has awarded prizes to apps that represent advanced artistic applications – it is rare for global art collections to acquire apps. With the help of apps even fine arts have become mobile. The multi-mediality of this new medium allows to combine various genres: Musicians work in cooperation with visual artists, and fine artists include music and acoustics in their works. Besides artistic aspects, the creative integration and the use of options offered by new technologies are important.

Award Categories 2017:

Prize for Game Art
Prize for Sound Art
Prize for AppARTivism

Artists, designers and developers from all over the world are invited to submit their developments until May 7, 2017. Each award > has prize money of € 10,000.

The award ceremony takes place at ZKM | Karlsruhe, July 7, 2017, at 8 pm.
