2020 Digital Graffiiti Call For Artists
December 20, 2019 by SoWal Staff
The Alys Foundation has opened the call for entries for the 13th annual Digital Graffiti Festival at Alys Beach, to be held May 15-16, 2020. Artists across the globe are invited to submit original works of digital art to be showcased in the juried festival.
The 2020 awards will include Best of Show ($5,000 prize), Curator's Choice ($2,000 prize) and three Special Recognition honors (at $1,000 prize each), selected by the festival's longtime curator Brett Phares and esteemed panel of judges. The deadline to submit is February 1st, 2020 at 12AM.
Staged along the elegant white walls of Alys Beach, Digital Graffiti provides a large-scale blank canvas for artists to explore the visual intersection of art and architecture, while also creating entirely new art forms. Once darkness falls in the coastal town along Scenic 30A, the white walls of Alys Beach's buildings glow with vibrant original art projections. Interested artists can submit their work HERE.
