First International City of Vinaròs Award for Digital LiteratureFirst International City of Vinaròs Award for Digital Literature
:: Tuesday, August 30, 2005 ::
Vinaròs city council and the Open University of Catalonia, through its Hermeneia research group, have created the International City of Vinaròs Award for Digital Literature. This award looks to catalyse the creation of digital literature, its recognition and broadcast. It is open to writers working in Catalan, Spanish, English, French, Portuguese or Italian. Work can be submitted from the first week of May until September 8.
The International City of Vinaròs Award for Digital Literature, one of the first of its kind on a European scale, is designed to reward
authors for works that involve digital technology in their production. The award is split into two categories: digital narrative (which includes hypertext narrative, interactive stories and any literary works that use the computer as a means for narration) and poetry (with pieces of dynamic poetry, computer-generated poetry, etc.). The winner from each of these categories will receive 2,500 euros. Likewise, the jury is to award the Vincenç Ferrer Romero special mention to the best work submitted in Catalan, the winner of which will receive 1,500 euros. Writers can present unpublished work on any subject. In the case of the poetry category, they can send a single poem or a collection.
The jury for this award, formed annually, is made up of experts in digital literature. The criteria that they take into account when assessing the works are literary quality, quality and accessibility of the interface design, experimentation with the web as a means for
literary creation, and exploration and exploitation of the computer as a means for creation.
The works should be sent to Hermeneia (Humanities and Philology Studies, Av. Tibidabo, 39, 08035, Barcelona, Spain) in a sealed envelope, clearly stating 1st CITY OF VINARÒS AWARD FOR DIGITAL LITERATURE and whether the entry is for the digital narrative or poetry category on the outside. The envelopes have to contain three copies of the work on CD and another sealed envelope, with the title of the work on the outside, a pseudonym or headword, where necessary, and any technical information needed to access the work;information on the writer(s) (name, address, telephone number, email, country of origin and a photocopy of their ID or passport) should be enclosed inside this envelope to ensure anonymity. There should also be a short summary of their literary works to date.
Hermeneia is a research group investigating literary studies and digital technologies and made up of experts from Brown University (USA), Bari University (Italy), the University of Turku (Finland), Ramon Llull University (Spain), Pompeu Fabra University (Spain), the University of Barcelona (Spain), the University of Essex (UK), the Autonomous University of Barcelona (Spain), Artois University (France), Rovira i Virgili University (Spain) and the UOC.
Its aim is to carry out research into the emergence of technology in terms of literary studies and literature itself, analysing the repercussions and producing a map of literary studies on the web, available to the whole of the European university community on the website. There are four basic lines of research: hypertext and literary studies, literary theory and comparative literature on the internet, the Lletra project and electronic literature.
