Projects can can manifest for a variety of contexts, including the web, mobile devices, the gallery or public settings. Grant awards can be applied to any stage of the project.

The majority will be decided by a jury consisting of Lauren Cornell, executive director of Rhizome, Tina Kukelski, Associate Curator of the Carnegie International 2003; Candice Madey, founder of On Stellar Rays gallery; and, critic and curator Domenico Quaranta.
