This digital exhibition program seeks to create a distinct digital space, delivery method, and platform for sharing artwork and projects that function most effectively presented in a digital format true to the methods in which they were created.


Submission Format
Types of work can include "net art", browser based games, pdf's, sound experiments, video content, digital photo based projects, animation, 3D models, websites, social media accounts, or almost any computer program — anything shareable via email, likely contained in a .zip folder attachment or accessible via a link.

For our purposes, a digital art project is a creative endeavor that culminates in the creation of digital files for the purpose of sharing content.

Acceptable media are digital files that meet these requirements:

  • Any file format that can be attached to an email
  • Can be experienced by the recipient given they have an internet connection, browser application, and media player application(s) for viewing common image, video, and audio file formats. 
  • Project files should be under 25 MB


 We ask that you submit:

  • Final files for project in shareable format
  • Artist name, brief bio, site and social media links
  • A statement for project
