With the nominees of the FEDORA Prizes Biennale now announced, the next phase in crowning a winner is now in effect: Allowing the audience to weigh in!
The 12 nominated projects in 4 categories are currently engaged in friendly competition on FEDORA Platform’s homepage, with each running their own crowdfunding campaign; show your support by 30 November and donate to your favourite project!
The general public will have another chance to voice their approval in January 2023, when voting for the “Audience Prize” commences; the people’s choice will then be announced alongside the eventual winners of the Prizes Biennale on 10 February at the Palais Garnier in Paris, France!
Since 2013, the FEDORA Platform has been encouraging the next generation of talent to bring the unexpected to the stage and international audiences. The four established prizes (Opera, Dance, Education and Digital) support cutting-edge projects that promote international collaboration, creativity, social Integration, intercultural dialogue and digital innovation.
FEDORA has so far invested €1.7 million for new creations, supporting over 57 new co-productions which boosted the careers of over 900 artists.
The IMZ is proud to be an Expert Partner for their Digital Prize since 2019, which is endowed with €50,000 in prize money and grants the support of project partner Kearney!
And now, without further ado, here are the three nominees for the Digital Prize! You can pledge to their crowdfunding campaigns here.
