Open Call: BAD award 2018
Submit your project

How to apply for the Bio Art and Design Award 2018:

We invite designers and artists interested in the Life Sciences to propose projects for collaborative work across disciplines. The Bio Art & Design Award (previously called the DA4GA) is a € 25.000 award for successful applicants to fully realize a new work of art or design that pushes the boundaries of research application and creative expression.

The Bio Art & Design Award highlights and explores exciting new intersections among design, artistic practice and the Life Sciences. The Award is a product of collaboration between ZonMW, NWO, MU and BioArt Laboratories. The selection procedure will be organized by ZonMw.

To be eligible for the award you must have graduated no longer than five years ago from a design or art program (at either the Masters or Bachelors level). Applicants are encouraged to relate their proposals to recent advances in the Life Sciences, including those within specialties such as ecology, biomedicine and genomics. Please be sure to read all information about the call, deadlines and requirements detailed down below before submitting an application.

The applications can be submitted (ultimately 1 February 2018 (23.59, CET)) by using the online registration system below. For each application we ask you to upload PDFs of your completed application form, your CV and portfolio. The maximum file size for each of these individual files cannot exceed 6MB.
