The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of Media
Arts (Japanese: Media Geijutsu) that honors outstanding works from a
diverse range of media – from animation and comics to media art and
games. The festival gives awards in each of its four divisions: Art,
Entertainment, Animation, and Manga. It also provides a platform for
appreciation of the Award-winning and other notable works. Since its
inception in 1997, the festival has recognized significant works of
high artistry and creativity, and in addition to a yearly Exhibition

screenings, and showcases. Last year, the 19th Festival received 4,417
entries from 87 countries and regions around the world, demonstrating
is continuing evolution as an established annual international
festival. Award-winning Works are exhibited both within Japan and
abroad through various projects and events organized by The Agency of
Cultural Affairs, Government of Japan which aims to develop and
promote the creation of Media Arts by focusing primarily on the new
generation of artists.

(call) Transmediale’s all year submission platform!

As of 2015 there is no longer a yearly thematic call for works that leads up to each transmediale festival. Instead artists and other cultural practitioners are welcome to submit their projects through an open submission system. Through this platform, transmediale strives to further develop the dialogue between its thematic and curatorial frameworks and the wider community of artists and culture professionals.


Who wants to go to Resonate festival?

Tickets for next year’s Resonate festival (http://resonate.io/2015/) in Belgrade just went on sale a few days ago and we’ve been discussing whether Dennis could get a student/group discount for the Digital Media students. For that matter we want to compile a list of students who would like to go.

Please consider that the conference ticket is actually just one expense. Travel and accommodation costs are considerable. I think it would make a bad impression if a lot of people show interest at first and only half are going to purchase a ticket. That being said the conference is absolutely worth it – IMHO it’s the in Europe and should be ‘mandatory’ for DM students. Apart from that Belgrade is a really beautiful and enjoyable city.

For the sake of simplicity please add yourself to this Doodle list: http://doodle.com/sadx5bea56z6ie8i
