Call for Projects, 3rd Annual Digital Salon

February 6th, 2012

UW Libraries and the Digital Humanities Initiative invite students (undergraduate and graduate) to submit their new media projects for exhibition during the 3rd annual Digital Salon, April 15-20, 2012.

The deadline for submitting a project will be Friday, March 5, 2012. Complete the online form to submit a project to the curatorial committee.

The Digital Salon seeks examples of artistic and research-oriented projects that take digital form or rely heavily on digital technologies in the production process. Examples of this work might include podcasts, experimental videos, animations, graphic novels or essays, websites, blogs, multimedia installations, posters, etc.

Additionally, undergraduate students who want to participate in the Undergraduate Symposium can elect to have their projects displayed at the Digital Salon Exhibition at the Symposium (in addition to the main Digital Salon exhibition in College Library’s Open Book Cafe and online). The Undergraduate Symposium is Wednesday, April 18 at Union South. To do this, students should fill out an application to the Undergraduate Symposium and check the “Digital Salon” box on their application.

Two previous exhibitions can be visited online: Digital Salon 2011, Digital Salon 2010.

The Digital Salon is organized by the Digital Humanities Initiative and UW-Madison Libraries, with additional support from DesignLab.
