    World's First Projection Art Festival Announces 2010 Call for Entries
    Digital Artists Worldwide to Compete for $10,000 in Cash Prizes

    Alys Beach, Florida (December 2, 2009) / Alys Beach announced that it will host the third annual "Digital Graffiti" festival on Saturday, June 12, 2010. Digital Graffiti (www.digitalgraffiti.com) is the world's first outdoor projection art festival, with artists using the latest technologies to project original video art onto the resort town's iconic white walls and rooftops.

    "No where else does the architecture of an entire community become a canvas for digital art," said Florida's Governor Charlie Crist. "Digital Graffiti embodies the innovation and originality that Florida prides itself on supporting."


    Each year, the Digital Graffiti festival attracts thousands of curious spectators and has showcased innovative and mesmerizing digital works from artists from all over the world, including France, Thailand, Belgium, India, Italy, Australia, Mexico, Germany, Brazil, England, Austria, Ireland, Canada, United Kingdom, China and the United States.

    "Digital Graffiti is a world-class event that allows civilians like myself to readily appreciate global artists at their creative and visual peak," said author, fashion model and TV celebrity India Hicks, who hosted the 2009 Digital Graffiti festival.

    In 2009, the $2,000 "Best of Show" honor was awarded to "Lustre" of Venice, California for their video art entitled, "Lure of Sirens." In 2010, a $5,000 "Best of Show" cash award is being sponsored by Alys Beach.

    Festival organizers are now calling for submissions from artists around the globe for inclusion in the 2010 competition. All entries should be submitted via email as soon as possible to events@alysbeach.com. The deadline for all submissions is March 15, 2010.

    ABOUT DIGITAL GRAFFITI
    Digital Graffiti is the world's first outdoor projection art festival, with artists using the latest technologies to project original video art onto the town's iconic white walls and rooftops. "Alys Beach welcomes painters with open arms and white walls," said USA Today. "But with projectors and laptops rather than spray cans." Sometimes referred to as "Photon Bombing," "Guerilla Projection" or "Urban Projection," underground artists around the globe have been using the latest design, animation and projection technologies to cast dynamic images onto skyscrapers and other urban structures as a means of artistic expression. But Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the first outdoor festival specifically organized to celebrate and showcase these unique talents. For more information, please visit www.digitalgraffiti.com.

    ABOUT ALYS BEACH
    One of the most beautiful new resort towns in the world, Alys Beach is located on the Beaches of South Walton's "Scenic Highway 30A," along what The New York Times said "may be the best beach in the continental U.S." Master-planned by Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company (DPZ), the town's extraordinary architectural vision drew inspirations from both Bermuda and the courtyard homes of Antigua, Guatemala. The town features restaurants, parks, pools, shops and other resort amenities-including a 21-acre nature preserve-and will eventually be home to 900 villas and family courtyard homes. Alys Beach is the first Fortified ... for safer living? community in the world, as designated by the Institute for Business & Home Safety, and all homes are built to Florida's Green Home Designation Standard. Alys Beach is developed by EBSCO Industries, a Forbes "Top 200" privately held company founded in 1943. For home sales or vacation rental information, please call 866-481-8387 or visit www.alysbeach.com.
