Dorf Tratsch /
Dorf Wiki Für Den Prix Art Electronica Nominiert
|Dear Franz Nahrada and the team of DorfWiki!
The category "Digital Communities", which met with great interest and participation in the last years, will be awarded again by Prix Ars Electronica in 2011. Your project "DorfWiki" is nominated by Margit Niederhuber and seems relevant to this category. Therefore we would like to encourage you and your team to participate with this project in the category "Digital Communities" of this year's Prix Ars Electronica (or to submit another project of yours that is fitting the criteria).
The Digital Communities category is open to political, social and cultural projects, initiatives, groups and scenes from all over the world that display contentious commitment in coming up with smart, successful ways of deploying digital technologies to solve social problems. Particular emphasis is placed on a project’s degree of community innovation, its sustainability and its use of technology in a way that makes good sense and is attuned to the needs of the people meant to benefit from it. Digital Communities projects should make it easier for people to access technology, networks and the Digital Commons.
For a detailed description of the category, please see our website: http://new.aec.at/prix/en/kategorien/digital-communities/
One Golden Nica with 10.000 Euro, two Awards of Distinction with 5.000 Euro each and up to 12 Honorary Mentions will be awarded by the jury.
The deadline for submissions is March 18, 2011.
Please go to http://new.aec.at/prix/en/einreichdetails/ for more information about how to submit to Prix Ars Electronia 2011.
If you need any further information or help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We would be very happy if you could help us "spread the word" in your community by circulating the information as widely as possible. And we would appreciate it if you could help us identify some projects, which in your opinion should participate in the competition. Please nominate them
