Call to participate in the

4th Nokia Ubimedia MindTrek Awards Competition

6th – 8th October 2010

Tampere, Finland



Competition deadline: August 22nd 2010

The Ubimedia competition seeks to broaden our understanding of where and how ubiquitous media will influence our future life. We are looking for disruptive artistic visions as well as clever near-to-market solutions off the beaten tracks! This includes any range of innovative ubimedia, pervasive, or ambient products and services. The Ubimedia Award is a highly interdisciplinary competition and we invite Designers, Computer Scientists, Artists, Economists and Engineers to take a stand on the following questions with their entries:

  • What is the particular aesthetic experience opened up by the rise of ubiquitous and ambient media?
  • What constitutes the specific intelligence that drives future media environments?
  • How will location- and context-aware media services change our social life?
  • How will our future lives look like in the era of ubiquitous computation, and how can society benefit from these advanced technologies?

The total award sum for the Nokia Ubimedia MindTrek Award is 7 000€.

The sum can be awarded to one entry, divided between several entries or not awarded at all if the award criteria set by the jury are not fulfilled.

Valid competition entries include e.g.:

  • Pervasive and ubiquitous games
  • Ambient installations
  • Artistic works related to ubiquitous media and computation
  • Business models and management strategies
  • Ambient and ubiquitous media technology
  • Ubiquitous and ambient media services, devices, and environments
  • Context aware, sensing, and interfaces for ubiquitous computation
  • Ergonomics, human-computer interaction designs, and product prototypes
  • Software, hardware and middleware framework demonstrations
  • Ambient television
  • etc.

To be inspired, please take a look at the entries from previous years

All ubiquitous, pervasive, or ambient media products, services or prototypes which have been finalized during the previous year after 1st January 2009 are eligible to take part in the competition.

Competition deadline is August 22nd 2010
