DEADLINE : 30th June

The Lumen Prize Exhibition celebrates the very best fine art created digitally from emerging and established artists globally. Our goal is to focus the world’s attention on this exciting genre of fine art through an annual competition and global tour of the works selected by our eminent panel of judges.

We are seeking the most compelling work of artists working with electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, 3D printers, and computers with proprietary or open-source software or coding of their own design.

We believe in the power of art and are honoured to be working with national and international charities, using our exhibitions as a tool for social change through fund-raising events and artist engagement globally. A percentage of each entry fee is donated to our founding partner charity, Peace Direct, which funds local peacebuilders in conflict zones globally.


The Lumen Prize was launched in 2011 by Carla Rapoport, a director of  Treberfydd Foundation Ltd, a not-for-profit company registered in Wales, UK.

The Lumen Prize is open to artists anywhere in the world. All entries are reviewed by Lumen’s International Selection Committee which is made up of academics, gallerists, artists and art historians from around the world. The top 100 works chosen by the ISC become the Lumen Online Gallery which is opened for a public vote for the People’s Choice Award in September.

The top 100 works are then reviewed by the Lumen Jury Panelwho choose the top 25 works that form the 2014 Lumen Prize Exhibition and the 2014 Lumen Prize winners. The Founder’s prize is selected by Lumen’s Founder, Carla Rapoport.

We work with a range of charities on our global tour and our partner charity, Peace Direct, receives a percentage of each entry fee.
