Nanotechnology Victoria is pleased to launch the inaugural NanoVic Prizes for Art and Nanotechnologies. These prizes recognise the interdependencies between art and new technology in imaging new technologies, providing scientific clarity and providing creative inspiration.
The prizes include:
- An award worth $2,000 for an actual image of nanotechnology phenomena taken from research, development or commercial activities. Entries should include the image and a description of its context and generation.
- An award worth $2,000 for artwork building on nanotechnology themes. This does not have to be generated as the result of scientific work in nanotechnologies but should draw on a theme related to nanotechnologies as its inspiration and/or final representation. Entries should include the artwork or a photograph of the artwork and a written justification on how nanotechnology is featured or used.
As part of acknowledging art and creating further public involvement with nanotechnology, NanoVic intends to display all original artworks in an exhibition to be held during 2007. More information on the prizes is available at www.nanovic.com.au/index.php?a=news.prizes&p=53&id=249. Feel free to email me at email@example.com for any queries you might have.
As part of the terms and conditions, all applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents of Australia. More information on entering is available by clicking here.
