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.
