ArtSlant is proud to announce the first annual
<ERROR 415> Award in New Media
Submissions are accepted April 10th - April 24th
Submissions are to be moving-image, computer-generated new media art that is representative of the experimental, critical and interrogative nature of this burgeoning medium. Sound and physical materials will not be supported at the installation.
Acceptable submission formats include:
single-channel embedded video
executable files formatted for OSX
A submission fee of $10 must be paid for the applicant to be considered. You may submit more than one work but the submission fee will apply each time. The winner of the Award will be announced at the beginning of the screening. They will also receive a cash prize of $415 (no need to be present to accept the award).

The Award Exhibition will take place Friday, May 17th at 9:06 PM following Andrew Benson’s site-specific projections in the courtyard of the Phoenix Hotel during the ArtSlant Afterparty at ArtPadSF. Top submissions to the Award contest will be projected onto the wall adjacent to the Phoenix Hotel (shown above) and viewable in virtual exhibition on ArtSlant.com following the installation. We will also be putting top submissions throughout the submission period on our tumblr.
An error 415 is the HTTP response status code for an unsupported media type; the award refers to new media practices which have yet to be fully supported by the art establishment. We are proud to present the first iteration of this award in the tech-savvy Bay Area.
