The Lumen Prize 2022

$13,500 Prize Fund


The Lumen Prize celebrates the very best art created with technology through a global competition. Now in its 11th year, it has distributed more than US$100,000 in prize money and created opportunities with partners worldwide for artists who have been longlisted, shortlisted or won Lumen Awards.

The judging of the Lumen Prize is done in two stages. The longlist is determined by our International Selectors Committee, made up of academics, curators and art critics. This longlist is reviewed by our Jury Panel, who select the finalists and winners of each category.


There are 9 award categories this year, with a prize fund of 13,500 USD. Shortlisted artists are eligible for the Lumen Gold Award with a 4,000 USD cash prize and there is a free-to-enter Student Award with a cash prize of 500 USD.


All art is eligible as long as it engages with technology in some form. You do not need to be a digital artist or be able to design software to enter. Artists can use any equipment, there is no limit.
