The Cube Art Project is an initiative of the city of Lincoln, Nebraska, the Lincoln Partners for Public Art Development, and ColorKey Media LLC.  We are seeking video art, animations, motion graphics, video-mapping, and/or sound visualization projects for screening on our three dimensional monitor (the Cube) located in the Rail Yard on Canopy Street.

This is a curated competition of clips that are suitable for a public art audience. Wide latitude in genre and style are considered however priority is given to artworks that have a formal/ visual appeal.

Projects should use a single channel video file: (.mov) (h264 codec) (936px tall by 288 px wide) (compressed to 500 MB or less) to see more specs go to: https://mburton4.wixsite.com/cube

In addition to the general call for video art,the jurors will select "special" projects that are interactive in some way. Artists submitting a "special" project are offered a small stipend not exceeding $1,600 to cover costs. Please include specifics on tech needs and a draft budget if your work falls into this category. 

1st prize = $500, 2nd prize = $250, 3rd prize = $100
