Emerging Talent: This section is reserved for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Students may submit work under any of the above categories or submit their designs and artwork for review. For art and design review see submission guidelines below.
Curated: This category invites writing, multi-media presentations, films and other audio-visual forms that attempt to explore and subvert the flexibility and immateriality of cyberspace. Cyberspace, which came with the promise of being a new and radical space, has been colonized by commerce, employed as an easy instrument of overbearing surveillance and is, in many ways a replica of the real world. This category invites a fundamental rethinking of what cyberspace is.
