Events of the Prix Ars Electronica during the Ars Electronica Festival

During the Ars Electronica Festival in September, the Golden Nicas, Awards of Distinction and Honorary Mentions are awarded with pomp at the Ars Electronica Gala.
The winners of the Golden Nicas and Awards of Distinction are also invited to present their projects at the Prix Ars Electronica Forums which are held over a number of days.

The Ars Electronica Festival presents the CyberArts Exhibition annually as one of its main shows. It showcases a selection of winning projects of the latest Prix Ars Electronica. The Museum of the Future, on the other hand, devotes a special exhibition for an entire year to the projects from the youth competition “u19–Create Your World”.

Formatted specially for the Festival, the award-winning works from the category “Computer Animation / Film / VFX” are shown at the Ars Electronica Animation Festival with the Electronic Theatre.

The “Digital Musics & Sound Art” winners present their works in the form of concerts conceived as part of the programme of Ars Electronica Nightlines.
