Committed to the creation and dissemination of contemporary culture, the University of Extremadura, through its Vice-Chancellor for Institutional Relations and Cultural Extension, has convened since 1994 Artistic Creation Awards, through which has resulted in creation of a collection of contemporary art, to provide the university community and the general public direct access to the understanding, study and enjoyment of new languages and artistic vanguards.

Being sensitive to the evolution of these languages and techniques and trying to cooperate actively in the construction of the new digital culture, still emerging, the University of Extremadura in 2010 updated the contents of these awards, creating a new section of its art collection, the promoting and convening the first Digital Arts Awards, an international character under the brand LUMEN_EX.

Given the huge success and the impact achieved in the first edition, UEx, ready to continue supporting this type of artistic creation and to strengthen its collection of contemporary art in this virtual production line, now calls through its Relations Office Institutional and Cultural Outreach, 2nd Digital Art Awards LUMEN_EX 2011.


The University of Extremadura, through the Vice-Chancellor of International Relationships and Cultural Extension, announces the second edition of the LUMEN_EX Digital Art Awards 2011.

The Digital Art Awards are divided into two categories:

• ‘Mini-animations’. Digital animation works (non-interactive) with a maximum duration of 5 minutes.

• ‘Interactive works’. Virtual works that require the interaction of the user.

The awards are as follows:

• For Best Mini-animation, a first prize of TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED EUROS (€2,500) and a second prize of ONE THOUSAND EUROS (€1,000) will be awarded.

• For Best Interactive work, a first prize of TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED EUROS (€2,500) and a second prize of ONE THOUSAND EUROS (€1,000) will be awarded.

All awards will be subject to current tax legislation and legally stipulated deductions. The award-winning work will become part of the University of Extremadura’s digital art collection.

The LUMEN_EX Awards will be adjudicated by a panel of competition judges who will establish their own assessment criteria to reach their decisions.

The winning works, together with those of the finalists selected by the judging panel, will become part of an exhibition held by the University of Extremadura at the MEIAC (the Extremaduran and Latin American Museum of Contemporary Art) in Badajoz. At the opening ceremony of the exhibition, the official presentation of the prizes will take place, after which the artwork could be exhibited at other exhibitions and/or by means of any system, channel or method of dissemination, as well as on the Internet or official LúMEN_EX social networks, but only as part of the LUMEN_EX Awards 2011.
