The Prix Ars Electronica is the world’s most time-honoured media arts competition. Winners are eligible for the coveted Golden Nica awards and monetary prizes of up to 10,000 euros in each category. They will also be featured at the Ars Electronica Festival from September 9 to 13, 2020!

To participate in the Prix Ars Electronica, you must register online and submit all mandatory information online. A submission is complete and formally entered in the competition only if all information has been entered online and the submission has been finalized online. An entry confirmation will be sent out via e-mail as soon as all required documentation has been received.


A project may be entered to both the STARTS prize and a Prix Ars Electronica category (Computer Animation, Interactive Art + and Digital Communities). It is, therefore, possible to win both the STARTS Prize and a Prix Ars Electronica award at the same time. To do so, submit your project to the specified Prix Ars Electronica category and in the appropriate entry field at the end of the submission confirm that the project is also to be considered for the STARTS Prize. Submitters, who registered already for the Prix Ars Electronica, can use this account also for the STARTS Prize.

Online Submission Deadline : March 2, 2020 (11:59 PM CET)
