Calling All Emerging Digital Light and Video Artists!

Do you have a bright idea for a new digital light art work? Or are you in the frame of mind to shoot a new artistic film instead? Maybe you’ve even got ideas that could apply to both?

Whether you fancy yourself as the next Bill Viola of artist film, or want to follow in the footsteps of our previous digital light art commissions like Squidsoup and Mads Christensen, we’ve got the opportunity to match your inspiration and drive, helping bring your proposals to life through two brand-new strands.
