Fundación Telefónica opens the call for Life International Awards VIDA, in its twelfth edition.

VIDA 12.0 rewards works of art developed with artificial life technologies and their associated disciplines, such as robotics and artificial intelligence works and projects that have emergent behaviour that evolve over time, react to their surroundings and seem to have own life. A total of 80,000 euros will be given as price; 40,000 in the category of the 3 best works completed, and another 40,000 as an incentive to production for undone projects. Winners will be selected by an international jury composed by Daniel Canogar, José Carlos Mariátegui, Monica Bello, Sally Jane Norman, Simon Penny and Karin Olenschläger.

All materials must be submitted before October 1st, 2009, in any of the offices of Fundación Telefónica in Spain (Madrid) or Latin America (Mexico City, São Paulo, Buenos Aires, Santiago de Chile and Lima).

In previous years the awards have been given to art projects made with robots, electronic avatars, chaotic algorithms, knowbots, cellular automata, computer viruses, virtual ecologies that evolve with the interaction of the participant, interactive architecture, augmented reality works and works that delve into social issues of artificial life.
