    For the fourth year, Alys Beach is allowing its iconic white walls and understated architecture to be the screens on which innovative digital works of art will be projected at the Digital Graffiti Festival, a juried digital art competition and exhibition.

    Alys Beach gives artists from all over the world the opportunity to display their original work while competing for $10,000 worth of combined prize money, awarded in five different categories. All projected works and subject matter will be considered for the competition and display during the 2011 festival, which will be held June 11.

    Tickets can be purchased for $20 at 2011 Digital Graffiti tickets on sale NOW! | Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach - The World's 1st Projection Art Festival through May 15. Tickets will be $25 online May 16 through June 10. The day of the festival, tickets will be $35, purchasable at the gate.

    A panel of judges with backgrounds involving the arts, film, architecture and journalism will evaluate the digital works. Among them are Florida’s State Film Commissioner, Lucia Fishburne as well as the Museum of the Moving Image in New York City’s Assistant Curator of Digital Media, Jason Eppink. Works will be judged in five categories including Best of Show, Judge’s Choice, Most Innovative/Experimental Submission, Best Local Submission, and Best Animated Submission.

    “We are seeing work that continues to push digital materials in unique ways, allowing for more expressive, even soulful, results,” said Brett Phares, Digital Graffiti curator for Alys Beach. “The diversity of work has expanded as well, with submissions coming to us from Turkey, New Zealand and Senegal, to name a few. This year's walls at Alys Beach will see even brighter and more provocative work, building on a global awareness and maturity that makes the festival an important venue for projected art and artists.”

    Ellen, there are several designated parking areas in Alys Beach - I seem to remember just following the signs once you get there. It was all very convenient.

    Submit your photos for KaleidoscopiaLIVE for feature at Digital Graffiti!

    Digital Graffiti finalist Andy McKeown is reaching out to the public to submit their images in order to be potentially featured in his 2011 submission, “Kaleidoscopia” for the fourth-annual Digital Graffiti Festival held in Alys Beach on Saturday, June 11.

    Using a program designed by McKeown called “Kaleidoscopialive,” anyone can submit their images and become part of the show. The toolkit can be accessed by visiting his website, www.kaleidoscopialive.com.

    Once uploaded, McKeown will incorporate user-submitted photos into his kaleidoscope-like exhibit. The work will be projected onto a one of the iconic white walls within the coastal community of Alys Beach. Repeat festival patrons may recall that McKeown was a featured finalist for his kaleidoscope-inspired piece at the 2010 Digital Graffiti.

    McKeown intentionally made the process as user-friendly and accessible as possible, “I originally designed the toolkit as I discovered most people just don’t have access to expensive software, and the toolkit makes the process almost instant (nothing much to learn) and this frees the user up to experiment with just making fabulous kaleidoscopes.”

    The process gets even easier with his webcam-version of the software. “There is no loading of files so ideal for small children and big people that don’t like computers!” McKeown said.

    Artists from all over the world will have the opportunity to display their original work while competing for $10,000 worth of combined prize money, awarded in five different categories. The digital works will be evaluated by a panel of esteemed judges with backgrounds involving the arts, film, architecture, and journalism.
