"Animate Projects, with support from the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, invites UK-based artists and animators to submit proposals for films that - in a broad sense - explore, question, subvert or confound our expectations of art and the 'digital'.
To apply, read the guidelines and download the submission form from the Opportunities section. The deadline for proposals is 4pm, 24 August 2011.
The Digitalis Commissions are part of Digitalis, a strand of activities for 2011 that focus on the potential of the digital space as a site for artistic production."
