Prix Ars Electronica 2006 invitation

MusicBrainz just received an invitation in the Digital Communities category for the Prix Ars Electronica 2006. We certainly fit the bill for this category, but I am not sure I have the time necessary to fill out the application. Would anyone be interested to help out with the application process?

Dear Musicbrainz team,

The category “Digital Communities”, which met with great interest and participation in 2004 and 2005, will be awarded again by Prix Ars Electronica in 2006. Your “Musicbrainz” project seems relevant to this category and we would like to encourage you to participate with this project in the category “Digital Communities” of this year’s Prix Ars Electronica.

The Digital Communities category is open to political, social and cultural projects, initiatives, groups and scenes from all over the world that display contentious commitment in coming up with smart, successful ways of deploying digital technologies to solve social problems. Particular emphasis is placed on a project, degree of community innovation, its sustainability and its use of technology in a way that makes good sense and is attuned to the needs if the people meant to benefit from it. Digital Communities projects should make it easier for people to access technology, networks and the Digital Commons.

For a detailed description of the category and about Prix Ars Electronica in general, please see our website:


One Golden Nica with 10,000 Euro, two Awards of Distinction

with 5,000 Euro each and up to 12 Honorary Mentions will

be awarded by the Jury.

The deadline for submissions is March 17, 2006.

Please use

for your submission and to obtain further details.

If you need any further information or help, please do not

hesitate to contact us.

Please circulate the information as widely as possible in

your community!

Looking forward to your participation!

Sincerely yours,

Ingrid Fischer-Schreiber

  1. what is the estimated effort for this, or more important: do you think it is worth trying? i think it will be possible to find some volunteers, but not until we have an idea what this candidacy would involve…
