Call for Entries
4th Nokia Ubimedia MindTrek Awards Competition
6th ? 8th October 2010
(!!!) DEADLINE EXTENDED TILL 20th SEPTEMBER 2010
Award Sum: 7 000?.
The Ubimedia competition seeks to broaden our understanding of where and how
ubiquitous media will influence our future life. We are looking for disruptive
artistic visions as well as clever near-to-market solutions off the beaten tracks!
This includes any range of innovative ubimedia, pervasive, or ambient products and
services. The Ubimedia Award is a highly interdisciplinary competition and we invite
Designers, Computer Scientists, Artists, Economists and Engineers to take a stand on
the following questions with their entries:
* What is the particular aesthetic experience opened up by the rise of ubiquitous and ambient media?
* What constitutes the specific intelligence that drives future media environments?
* How will location- and context-aware media services change our social life?
* How will our future lives look like in the era of ubiquitous computation, and how can
society benefit from these advanced technologies?
Valid competition entries include e.g.:
* Pervasive and ubiquitous games
* Ambient installations
* Artistic works related to ubiquitous media and computation
* Business models and management strategies
* Ambient and ubiquitous media technology
* Ubiquitous and ambient media services, devices, and environments
* Context aware, sensing, and interfaces for ubiquitous computation
* Ergonomics, human-computer interaction designs, and product prototypes
* Software, hardware and middleware framework demonstrations
* Ambient television
To be inspired, please take a look at the entries from previous years: http://www.ambientmediaassociation.org/node/18
All ubiquitous, pervasive, or ambient media products, services or prototypes which have been finalized
during the previous year after 1st January 2009 are eligible to take part in the competition.
