What is a Digital Artifact?

Digital Artifacts are the creative outcome of any computer-mediated form of production that can be distributed and delivered digitally. Submissions are on a rolling basis, over the course of a two week submission period.

So what can I submit?

Some suggestions: Cell phone background, desktop background, delightful gifs, video stills, excerpts from films, 3D files and assets, audio clips, excerpts from original scores, digital sketches of wild unrealized projects.

You may donate anything you wish that falls under the category of a digital artifact, however, only original artworks will be accepted.

Multiple submissions are allowed, but each work needs to fill out a submission form and sign a contract.

Some Resources for creating digital artifacts

We reserve the right to not include your submission if it falls outside what we are able to host as a digital artifact, if it is offensive or inappropriate, or otherwise does not follow the guidelines.
