"Count Us In" Creative Open Call

What or who do you want to protect most from the effects of climate change?

For February, the month of ‘love’, Count Us In are inviting artists and illustrators to submit new or existing work in the form of a single image to inspire people to consider: What or who do you want to protect most from the effects of climate change?

Selected entries from the open call will be published as part of an Instagram takeover on the Count Us In Instagram account from Valentine’s Day, February 14th.

What is Count Us In?

Count Us In is a radical collaboration by over 70 organisations around the world (and growing) including TED, the EU, Tottenham Hotspur, IKEA, the Olympics and many more. Our aim is to inspire 1 billion individual citizens to take practical actions to reduce their carbon pollution and place pressure on leaders to make bold the changes needed to prevent the worst effects of climate change over the next decade. We will achieve this through Count Us In soft-launched in late 2020 with big ambitions for 2021. See www.count-us-in.org for more information on the project.

Creative Tips: What makes great climate communication? 

This open call is designed to inspire change and ignite action! Based on our our research here are some top tips for your image submission:

1. Uplift! Research tells us that when it comes to climate, imagery and messages of doom and despair can actually be ineffective. The Count Us In approach is about highlighting the positives that will come if we act now. Consider optimistic, celebratory or even humorous angles.

2. Think local:  Make it personal and close to home. It could be a place (local park where you hike) an animal (your cat!), an experience or a relationship. 

3. Be Specific: Research also tells us humans respond to specifics - so the more detailed you are about what you want to protect, the clearer your message will land. 

4. A clear message: Be creative but bear in mind an abstract image or generic (albeit beautiful) landscape may not be the most effective at communicating your message. Something figurative, graphic or with people may be more useful. 

5. Avoid climate cliches: Decades of campaigns about polar bears and burning planets mean that - even if it's true - those messages are less effective at getting people to pay attention.

.art Domains and Ars Electronica Launch an Online Exhibition for the 2020 Edition of the Festival

In response to the global pandemic and its impact, the leading new media arts festival Ars Electronica has partnered with .art Domains to inaugurate Ars Electronica .ART Gallery, the online arm of the festival this year. It will be the first time in the festival’s history that an online showcase accompanies the physical event. 

Ars Electronica .ART Gallery will invite its visitors to explore two sections: Ars Electronica .ART Global Gallery and Ars Electronica .ART Pavilions. The Global Gallery section is open to all applicants through an Open Call, which offers digital artists a unique opportunity to be part of the festival by submitting their work to be exhibited in this section. Ars Electronica .ART Pavilions will feature special projects presented by Ars Electronica's selection of curators.

The current situation has set the stage for an unprecedented shift toward the online. Rising to these challenging times, the team behind .art Domains has developed .art Digital Twin. Ars Electronica .ART Gallery is highlighting the variety of projects that are possible within the online format and offer participating artists the opportunity to certify their works with this new tool.

The .art Digital Twin captures the artwork information in quality and volume that wouldn't be possible with a "traditional" offline certificate. Using the DNS (domain name system) stability as its foundation allows for Ethereum integration and existing blockchain solutions to be additionally used. The .art Digital Twin empowers artists to attach and store an unprecedented number of data and files about an artwork, allowing for new levels of data sharing in an online exhibition format. Together with Ars Electronica, the team behind .art Domains hopes to improve the current conditions for digital art certification. 

Submissions are now open for the Ars Electronica .ART Global Gallery

Open Сall application deadline: 01/09/2020

Ars Electronica .ART Gallery will be presented from 9th Sept – 23rd September 2020

Deadline:
