LIFE 3.0 International Competition - Call for Participation
This is a call for submission of art works to the second edition
of an international competition on "art and artificial life."
We are looking for works in electronic and digital media that
cross over with the field of
a-life research. Artists whose work uses digital synthesis techniques
and whose conceptual concerns are related to synthetic life and
artificial evolution, are invited to submit their pieces. The
work may employ techniques such as digital genetics, autonomous
robotics, recursive chaotic
algorithms, knowbots, computer viruses, avatars, evolving behaviours
or virtual ecosystems.
An international jury (Daniel Canogar, Joe Faith, Machiko Kusahara,
Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Sally Jane Norman and Nell Tenhaaf) will
grant three cash awards, with a first prize of US $5,000 (2nd
Prize:$3,500 - 3rd Prize:$1,500), plus seven honorary mentions
to the most innovative electronic art projects related to a-life.
Furthermore, works that are
awarded a monetary prize or selected for an honorary mention
will be included in a "Best of LIFE 3.0" video which will be
aired on specialty television programs and circulated at festivals
worldwide. Assessment will
be based on video documentation submitted along with an application
form. The deadline for submission is Thursday September 28, 2000.

The Life 3.0 International Competition is sponsored by the Fundación
Telefónica in Madrid, Spain.
