Some Australian/NZ/Pacifica entries would be great :)

from Stephen Kovats....

This past Thursday at W2, Vancouver's Community Media Arts Society <http://www.creativetechnology.org/ 
 >, I had the pleasure to announce, in collaboration with the Mozilla  
Foundation, the creation and launch of the new 'Open Web Award 2011' -  
a special third platform for creative excellence alongside the  
'transmediale Award 2011' and the 'Vilém Flusser Theory Award 2011'.

The 'Open Web Award' is a new platform aimed at highlighting and  
promoting 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 and/or collaboration

They can be critical, celebratory or both. Projects should have the  
potential to demonstrate and/or objectively critique the potential of  
open web issues, and those employing the creative use of HTML5 and  
other developing 'open' technologies will be given specific  
consideration. The point is to play with both the idea and materiality  
of the (open) web in ways that spark new thinking and practice.

The winner(s) of the 'Open Web Award 2011' will receive a total prize  
of 5000 EUR, and be given the opportunity to have 'supported' status  
on Drumbeat <http://drumbeat.org/>. Beyond the specific 'Open Web  
Award' criteria, the same rules, conditions and application procedures  
apply as the 'transmediale Award 2011' <http://www.transmediale.de/en/awards2011 

The Deadline for Entries to the transmediale 'Open Web Award 2011' is  
also July 31, 2010 (2400 CEST / UST+2)!
