A new award, created by The STRP Organization has to challenge designers to connect the worlds of art and technology. The STRP Award for Creative Technology (ACT) exists out of a prize of 30.000 euro to be awarded to proven talent and two prizes of 15.000 euro to go to new talent. The money has to be spent on working out the new idea.

The winners will be announced at the 2017 STRP Biënnale, between the 24th of March and the 2nd of April. The organization wants to provide budget and mentoring for the production and presentation of the work that will be crafted.

The ideas that are submitted, can take any shape or form imaginable, as long as they have a connection to the theme of Senses & Sensors. The organization: “Senses & Sensors revolves around observation: observation of self and the world around us. How we observe, what we observe and how the progression of technology stretches those observations to a new dimension. Senses & Sensors connects the biological to the digital, man and machine from a cultural perspective. It lets interaction and immersion take central stage.”

Designers must submit their ideas before Sunday the 15th of January 2017.
