The Lumen Prize is an international award that celebrates the very best fine art created digitally. Our goal is to focus the world’s attention on this exciting genre of fine art through an annual juried competition that finds the very best examples of digitally-created art and then tours this work at selected galleries and venues globally.
The competition and global exhibition are aimed at a growing, global public that is increasingly interested in art created with the latest technology. We are seeking the most compelling work of well-known artists working with smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and computers as well as work from artists who are just starting out with these tools.
It is our belief that the power of art can promote both change and social progress. In addition to accepting entries from anywhere in the world, we will also seek out artists in low income and conflict-affected countries and communities. To assist in this outreach, we are working with Peace Direct, a registered charity, which has links to local cultural groups in many of these areas.
WHO WE ARE
The Lumen Prize was launched in 2012 by Treberfydd Foundation Ltd, a not-for-profit company registered in Wales, UK. Proceeds, after costs, will go to Peace Direct, our partner charity, supporting its vital work with local peacebuilders around the world.
