Out of all of the media art competitions, the Prix Ars Electronica has the richest tradition in the world. Awarded every year since 1987, the competition is considered a barometer of trends in global media art, thanks to its consistency and the large number of high-quality submissions it receives. Containing many pictures and texts, as well as statements by the jury, the book assembles the artworks recognized in 2018 in the categories of Computer Animation, Digital Communities, Interactive Art+, and u19 - CREATE YOUR WORLD. In addition, the publication again features a best-of selection of works submitted to the European Commission's STARTS Prize competition. This highly remunerated competition focuses on innovative projects that deal with a combination of science, technology, and art (= Science, Technology and ARTS).
