The International Competition for the Intermedia Artwork is organised by the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków, The Faculty of Intermedia and the Foundation for Development of Intermedia Artwork. 2020 marks the second edition of the event. It is open to all Intermedia artists. There are multiple purposes for this competition. We want to identify artworks that may initiate a discussion on comparison and evaluation criteria for Intermedia works of art. We also want to focus on the presentation forms of such works and their role in communication. What we suggest doing is comparing works of art intended for the same or similar forms of presentation. Therefore, the first edition of the competition has two separately evaluated categories: a competition for Intermedia Artwork and a competition for Intermedia Artwork Concept. We invite artists to submit their proposals for one for both categories.

There are no age restrictions for artists, or restrictions concerning dates of creation, publication or presentation of the works. Please make sure that apart from meeting the presentation and evaluation criteria, we also require you to confirm your full authorship and copyrights. You will need you to provide us with a consent to process your submission within the competition procedure and the conditions of presentation. As organisers, we guarantee public and online presentation of all works meeting the competition criteria. The comparison, choices made by the International Jury as well as allocating the awards shall also be made public and they will follow the regulations of the competition. The International Jury shall consist of five people – artists and media art theorists. The group shall also include a representative from the organising body.

The works may be submitted in one or both categories
