The Alys Foundation invites artists from around the world to submit original artwork for the eighth-annual Digital Graffiti Festival, the world’s first projection art festival, which will be held in Alys Beach again next year.
On the evenings of June 4-6, Alys Beach will open its doors, courtyards, and pedestrian paths to innovative artists who transform the entire resort town into a living work of art like nothing that’s been done before.The juried festival explores ways in which art, design and technology interact with the distinctive architecture of Alys Beach to create new forms of expression. Guests who attend are able to view and, at times, participate in these installments experiencing some of the latest trends in digital art and technology in a completely unique space as they are projected on the walls of Alys Beach homes and other structures.For this year’s festival, selected finalists will have their work projected at the event and will compete for $10,000 in cash prizes, including a $5,000 “Best of Show” award. Last year, 29 artists representing 24 cities in 12 countries on four different continents competed during the festival. A panel of judges awarded prizes to seven winners from Brussels, Canada, Portugal, France, Austria, Germany, New Zealand, India and 10 different cities throughout the U.S.
