"Good digital art - I found myself wanting to know more about the artists and the techniques used"

Initiated by Scottish Screen in 2000 the Alt-w Fund supports the development of new artworks, devices and creative applications that challenge the notions of what networked or web-based digital creativity can be. For 2008 our focus is to support projects which dynamically engage audiences beyond the screen.

The Alt-w fund is open to practitioners based in Scotland. We processed a record forty five applications this year and New Media Scotland announced the eight winning recipients at the CCA on the 13th September 2008. This closing party was curated by Dan Norton and featured performances from FiST/radar, Throb, Glow More Nails, ablab, Vitascope and Jaygo Bloom.

The distribution of Alt-w awards is managed by New Media Scotland and funded by Scottish Screen and Scottish Arts Council.
