2016 OUTLINE

Calling for new creatives that transcend the divide between physical and digital.

SUBMISSIONS

The award calls for submissions that leverage both the digital and physical. These submissions can be anything from
products, art, architecture, or intangible projects such as performing arts, events or workshops.

A condition of entry is that the submitted work be in its completed/operational form created
with such machines as digital fabrication tools and not left in the conceptual phase of design plans or proposals.

Submissions can be something that has already been launched, or something yet to be unveiled.
