Deadline:  June 2008 to the 6th of October 2008

VIDA 11.0 rewards works of art developed with artificial life
technologies and related disciplines: robotics, artificial
intelligence, etc. We  are looking for works of art with emerging
behaviours, which evolve over time, react with their environment
and seem to have a life of their own. VIDA 11.0 is searching for
projects that relate technology with biology and that research
the synthetic characteristics of modern life.

In previous editions, prizes have been awarded to artistic
projects created with robots, avatars, recursive chaotic
algorithms, knowbots, cellular automata, computer viruses,
virtual ecologies that evolve with user interaction, interactive
architectures, augmented reality pieces and works that explore
the social aspects of A-life.

A total of €40,000 will be awarded to the three projects selected
by the jury: First prize: €18,000(*), Second prize: €14,000(*),
Third prize: €8,000(*). The winning pieces may be exhibited at
Fundación Telefónica´s Virtual Museum and in the exhibitions
related to art and new technologies it organises or takes part

Works of art submitted must not be more than two years old. This
enables the Competition to keep updated and aware of the last
technological trends in the field of artificial life.


The second category of the VIDA 11.0 International Competition
aims to help fund artistic A-life projects (and related
disciplines) that have not yet been created. The competition is
open to participants from Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

With prize money totalling €40,000 (*)., this category will
reward from one to three projects that deal with a relevant
A-life concept and demonstrate the artist's capacity to produce
the piece. The jury will also value outstanding quality of
previous work.


To enter both categories (“Finished Projects” and “Artistic
Production Incentives”), carefully read TERMS AND CONDITIONS and
complete the ENTRY FORM.

Paulo, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile and Lima). The addresses
are included in the documentation. Entry forms can also be sent
via email to vida  telefonica.es, provided that the applicant
