Subject: Digital Communities 06 / Prix Ars Electronica

[Forwarding from Ingrid Fischer-Schreiber. --Peter.]

For the third time, Prix Ars Electronica, the foremost
international prize for computer-based art, is starting its
call for entries for "Digital Communities" projects. The
category "Digital Communities" has been a great success in
its 2004 and 2005 editions and is singling out for
recognition projects of great sociopolitical relevance.

The Digital Communities category is open to political,
social and cultural projects, initiatives, groups and scenes
from all over the world that display contentious commitment
in coming up with smart, successful ways of deploying
digital technologies to solve social problems. Particular
emphasis is placed on a project whose degree of community
innovation, its sustainability and its use of technology in
a way that makes good sense and is attuned to the needs of
the people meant to benefit from it. Digital Communities
projects should make it easier for people to access
technology, networks and the Digital Commons.

We would like to ask you to help us "spread the word" in
your community by circulating the information as widely as
possible. We also would be very glad if you could help us
identify some projects, which in your opinion should
participate in the competition.

Deadline for submissions is March 17, 2006.

For a detailed description of the category, please consult

If you need any further information or support, please do
not hesitate to come back to me.

Your sincerely,
Ingrid Fischer-Schreiber
