Global prize for digital performance open for entries - closing date 8 June

WNo Banner
Welsh National Opera and the Lumen Prize Exhibition, the competition and global tour for digital art, have combined forces to award a new prize recognising excellence in digital art for theatrical purpose incorporating both sound and movement. The Lumen Prize, which is now in its fourth year, is open to artists anywhere in the world. The Lumen WNO Performance Award will be the first time the organisation has awarded a prize for performance work. This is a new collaboration for WNO who are reaching out to new audiences with increasing digital work on a national stage.

"Digital Art is fast becoming a vital component to the very best operatic performances globally. By using the magic of electronics and the brilliance of original coding, artists can enhance both established and new opera alike. This prize is aiming at finding the best artists working in that space," says Carla Rapoport, Director of the Lumen Prize. "We are honoured to be working with WNO to launch this prize as part of the 2015 Lumen Prize Call for Entries."

In addition to the prize of US$1000, WNO is pleased to be offering a US$1500 commission to the winning artist to develop his or her work in collaboration with the WNO team, with the possibility of its performance by WNO artists. For more information about this prize see the Lumen Prize website. The Call for Entries for the Lumen WNO Performance prize closes on 8 June.
