The Alys Foundation is pleased to announce the call for entries for the 16th Annual Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach, to be held May 19-20, 2023. Artists around the world are invited to submit original works of digital art to be showcased in the juried festival. The 2023 awards include Best of Show ($5,000 prize), Curator’s Choice ($2,000 prize) and three Special Recognition honors (at $1,000 prize each), selected by the festival’s curator, John Colette, and esteemed panel of judges. The Alys Foundation has donated more than $350,000 in awards and artist stipends over the past 15 years, all to further digital work in the public realm.
The Scenic 30A community of Alys Beach, located along the northwest Florida coastline, provides the environment for the Digital Graffiti festival, the open-air, organic gallery for the projections of these original artworks. Staged against the elegant white walls of Alys Beach, Digital Graffiti provides a large-scale blank canvas for artists to explore the visual intersection of art and architecture. The engagement between the art, architecture, and audience is transformative, creating an immersive and interactive art projection experience that is entirely unique to the Digital Graffiti festival, named as one of the top “24 Unconventional Art Destinations Around the World” by National Geographic.
Artists, designers, photographers, and architects are invited to submit their artwork to be projected under the night sky and onto the pristine, reflective white walls of Alys Beach. This evening festival features the town, buildings and landscape, illuminated by the latest in design, animation, and projection technologies; two glowing evenings of innovation and inspiration, with artists from around the world exhibiting works of projection mapping, generative art, experimental short films, and animation, as well as sound, motion, and light-responsive installations.
Interested artists can submit their work here.
The deadline to submit is March 1, 2023, at 12AM. There is no application fee and ARTISTS RETAIN 100% OWNERSHIP OF THEIR WORKS, although please note that by submitting an entry, you agree to allow Digital Graffiti, Alys Beach and/or its sponsoring partners the unrestricted right to use your artwork (in part or in whole) for promotional purposes.
