The Mona Prize for panoramic content is an open digital art prize for the production of screen-based content that best uses Horse Bazaar’s unique panoramic projection system. The screens are custom-built for the environment and extend for nearly 20 metres around the bar. Casting aside the traditional 4:3 screen format, visual artists are asked to produce digital content at an 8:1 ratio. The Mona Prize aims to cultivate the appreciation and production of panoramic virtual décor. This is an acquisitional competition; winning pieces will become a part of the MONA art collection.**

Second Life Artists Residency
Application closing date: 27 July 2007 The Australia Council for the Arts is offering up to $20,000 for a collaborative artist residency in the virtual world of Second Life. The aim of the residency is to offer Australian artists and writers the opportunity to creatively and critically explore new interactive, virtual platforms.
The residency allows for a collaborative team of up to three people (including a writer, musician/sound artist and digital visual media practitioner) to develop inter-disciplinary artwork in Second Life. Applications will be accepted from teams who fulfil all the residency requirements, including having the necessary artform experience. Artists or writers who have professional experience in more than one of the required artform areas can include this as part of their submission.
Program purpose: The Second Life artist residency is an initiative of the Literature Board, Music Board and Inter-Arts Office of the Australia Council. The residency is in-world and requires artists and writers to explore the possibilities of inter-disciplinary literary, music/sound art and digital visual media practices.
The successful team will develop new artistic in-world practices and comment on the social and cultural layers that have evolved in Second Life.
Key requirements of the project are a clear strategy for harnessing both in-world and real life audiences and developing public exhibition opportunities for the artwork in Australia.

2007 SYNAPSE ART AND SCIENCE RESIDENCIES
Call for proposals from Australian media artists
ANAT is pleased to announce the call for proposals from Australian media artists and science organisations to participate in the 2007 Synapse Art and Science Residency program.
The residencies are available to Australian artists with experience in media arts practice and an interest in science. Artists from all technologically mediated disciplines are welcome to apply.
Residencies can be undertaken at either an Australian or overseas science organisation for a period of 12 or 16 weeks, depending on the location. ANAT will provide an artist’s fee, accommodation, a living away allowance and return travel to the destination of the residency if required. It is anticipated the host organisation will provide access to personnel, equipment, space and resources, as well as contributing towards materials and/or the cost of mounting an exhibition at the conclusion of the residency.
The Synapse residencies provide an opportunity for artists to work with key areas of research and science expertise whilst contributing to the creative needs of the science organisation. In order to encourage early relationship-building and to ensure the best fit between artist and host organisation, a joint proposal must be submitted. It is the responsibility of either partner to establish contact with the other and to determine the best possible collaboration prior to application. Those with existing relationships are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.
The Synapse program, established in 2004, supports creative partnerships between scientists and artists, science institutions and art organisations. As well as the residencies, the Synapse initiative comprises an international database of science/arts collaborations and a moderated email discussion list (both to be launched during 2007 National Science Week), as well as the Australia Council/Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage program, which supports arts/science collaborations in tertiary education research environments.
The deadline for applications is 5pm, Friday, 29th June 2007
Guidelines for applicants can be downloaded from www.anat.org.au
