The transmediale Open Web Award is a new platform for radical, creative and innovative art works and projects that:
- are on the web and about the web
- use open source, free, libre or other non-proprietary technology (may they be soft- or hardware)
- incite participation
They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of open web issues.
