Technical requirements

KP21-digital asks for digital works of art and NOT reproductions of physical works!

Definition of digital art
We define digital art as artistic design that has digital and electronic media as a basis for an art practice. The works can be cross-aesthetic (visual media, music, performance, light, etc. in the same work), and/or contain interactive aspects.
General genres within digital art include: video art, sound art, web art, art games or apps, podcasts, software art, augmented reality and cross-media projects.

  • The artistic idea must be grounded in the digital format. We do NOT want photographs of analogue works of art.
  • The work must be created to be able to operate on ordinairy digital platforms such as computer, tablet and smartphone - both Android and iOS (and possibly via links to separate software).

- in general related to the exhibition
For KP21 digital, the audience must be able to access the works on ordinary digital platforms such as computer, tablet and smartphone (both Android and iOS). It is therefore necessary that a work can operate on these platforms, for it to be accepted for the exhibition.

 - related to application
We expect to receive many different types of digital works and file types, and a complete list of technical requirements for the file types is impossible to compile.
However, below is a list of basic requirements for image files, video files, and audio files.

Note, that for works with a duration of more than 3 minutes, it may be a good idea to make a trailer of a maximum of 3 minutes for the selection committee. The intention of the trailer is to facilitate the work of the selection committee, and the trailer will not be included in the exhibition if the work is accepted.
