Calling all young Animators:

The National Portrait Gallery and Macquarie Group Foundation are calling all creative types aged 18 – 30 to submit a screen-based digital portrait (moving image, video, animation and code works etc.) for the I.D. Digital Portraiture Award.

Please note: you need to be Australian resident and own the copyright to the work. Also there is a HUGE $10,000 up for the winner and an Artist in residency in early 2013 at the Perth Institute for Contemporary Arts (PICA).
