MOZAIK Philanthropy’s 4th Annual Future Art Awards: The Digital Awakening is an arts-based exploration and interrogation of meta-futures. As human beings begin to shift away from the physical world and towards virtual and augmented realities, the world of art stands at the center of a global movement where immersive environments, online avatars, and the advent of a digital blockchain-based future will inevitably have a profound impact on art, culture, politics, activism, and the economy.
The Digital Awakening is an open call to US artists from all walks of life and creative expressions who wish to use their art to reimagine what a high-tech, highly connected — yet still deeply human — future metaverse could look like.
All US artists practicing in any art form are welcome, including those who work with NFTs. Judging will proceed through a blind review process. Winners will receive between $2,500 and $5,000 and will be featured in a curated virtual exhibition, opening free to the public in the fall of 2022.
The deadline to apply for The Digital Awakening is July 8; the application is free to submit.
