TANDEM DigiArt Award: Calling Digital Artists

If you are a digital artist from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia, this contest is for you!


As part of the Speak up culture! campaign, the EU Neighbours South programme is launching a new competition for visual digital art: the TANDEM DigiArt Award. This new category celebrates the power of collaboration and recognises that creativity goes beyond traditional media.


The TANDEM DigiArt Award thematic focus is “empowerment in all its forms”. Participants are encouraged to explore and communicate messages relating to the various EU-funded initiatives of empowerment in the Southern Neighbourhood, including the successes of young professionals and the impact of work and education on individuals and communities.


In order to participate :

  1. Dive into the Entry Toolkit!
  2. Partner with a fellow artist. Only TANDEM entries (pairs) will be accepted, so team-up!
  3. Make sure you produce a video* using digital art techniques. Get creative !
  4. Submit your video along with an application through this link. Remember you have until 31 July 2024 so don’t miss the deadline!


If you are among the lucky 3 shortlisted pairs, you will get the fully funded opportunity to attend the award ceremony in Morocco. And if you’re the winning pair, you get a prestigious award and €3,000 in prize money!


* The video cannot be longer than 90 seconds. It could use a wide range of digital art forms such as 3D modelling, video animation, interactive art, graphic design, cartooning, artificial intelligence art and digital painting. Don’t forget that the video has to express  interpretations of the competition’s focus on empowerment in different areas, preferably linked to the EU’s efforts in the field.
