DIGITAL GRAFFITI OPENS 2019 CALL FOR ENTRIES
The 12th annual international projection art festival in Alys Beach, FL
 
The Alys Foundation is pleased to announce a call for entries for the 12th Annual Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach, to be held  May 17-18, 2019. Artists worldwide are invited to submit original works of digital art to be showcased in the juried festival. The 2019 awards include Best of Show ($5,000 prize), Curator’s Choice ($2,000 prize) and three Special Recognition honors (at $1,000 prize each), selected by the festival’s longtime curator Brett Phares and esteemed panel of judges. The deadline to submit is February 1, 2019, at 12 a.m.
 
Staged along the elegant white walls of Alys Beach, Digital Graffiti provides a large-scale blank canvas for artists to explore the visual intersection of art and architecture, while also creating entirely new art forms. Once darkness falls in the coastal town along scenic Highway 30A, the vibrant original art projections glow on the iconic walls of Alys Beach’s homes.
 
Digital Graffiti 2019 promises to deliver an ultimate immersive experience in projected art. The Alys Foundation has donated more than $200,000 in awards and artist stipends over the past 11 years, all to further digital work in the public realm.
 
Artists, designers, photographers, and architects are invited to submit their artwork to be projected under the night sky and onto the pristine, reflective white walls of Alys Beach. Both evenings of the festival will feature the town illuminated with stunning examples of projection mapping, generative art, experimental short films and animation, and sound, motion, and light responsive installations.
 
Interested artists can submit their work here. For more information about the festival, please visit digitalgraffiti.com.
