Global Digital Art Prize: Win $35,000

The Nanyang Technological University Global Digital Art Prize (NTU GDAP) is organised by the NTU Institute of Science and Technology for Humanity (NISTH) and the School of Art, Design and Media. It recognises global artists and technologists with extraordinary creativity in digitally mediated art, design and cultural heritage in the age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The deadline is on February 15, 2019.

The theme of the inaugural NTU GDAP is Fourth Industrial Revolution.
