World’s First Projection Art Festival Announces 2010 Call for Entries

Digital Artists Worldwide to Compete for $10,000 in Cash Prizes

Alys Beach–Florida’s premiere beach resort town–announced that it will host the third annual "Digital Graffiti" festival on Saturday, June 12, 2010. Digital Graffiti is the world’s first outdoor projection art festival, with artists using the latest technologies to project original video art onto the resort town’s iconic white walls and rooftops.

"No where else does the architecture of an entire community become a canvas for digital art," said Florida’s Governor Charlie Crist. "Digital Graffiti embodies the innovation and originality that Florida prides itself on supporting."

Each year, the Digital Graffiti festival attracts thousands of curious spectators and has showcased innovative and mesmerizing digital works from artists from all over the world, including France, Thailand, Belgium, India, Italy, Australia, Mexico, Germany, Brazil, England, Austria, Ireland, Canada, United Kingdom, China and the United States.

"Digital Graffiti is a world-class event that allows civilians like myself to readily appreciate global artists at their creative and visual peak," said author, fashion model and TV celebrity India Hicks, who hosted the 2009 Digital Graffiti festival.

In 2009, the $2,000 "Best of Show" honor was awarded to "Lustre" of Venice, California for their video art entitled, "Lure of Sirens." In 2010, a $5,000 "Best of Show" cash award is being sponsored by Alys Beach.

Festival organizers are now calling for submissions from artists around the globe for inclusion in the 2010 competition. All entries should be submitted via email as soon as possible to events@alysbeach.com. The deadline for all submissions is March 15, 2010.
