Hello Everybody, It seems that the world is finally understanding that ART is changing thanks to the new media. I found this interesting competition that, beside traditional forms of expression, has a section called 'Virtual Art' dedicated to artworks created using iPad or iPhone apps! The awards total amount is about 233163 USD and there are many special prizes. In particular a collaboration with an Italian Jewelry Company called FOPE. Not bad!
