Digital art projects to culturally enrich Island Games

Wednesday 22 March 2023

Guernsey Arts will be running a digital-only art programme to run alongside the Island Games, with entries now open to people from all the participating islands.

The Islands Digital Arts Open will be asking artists from Bermuda to Jersey to submit work with the theme of ‘islands’, which can be existing pieces or an original creation.

Submissions should explore the significance of an individuals’ island home, be it a dramatic viewpoint, an iconic landmark, emotive building, or an interpretation of a historic moment. 

These could include a photograph, short film, an animation, digital art, or high-resolution scan of physical work.

A chosen piece from each of the 24 islands will be replicated and exhibited in the George Crossan Gallery in the Market Buildings and showcased digitally on screens at various sporting venues in July. 

The hope is to build a “collaborative insight across” the jurisdiction, improve cultural diplomacy and cement a legacy for respective creative communities. 

Entries can be submitted online HERE until April 30.

  • All entries should be submitted digitally.
  • Entries will be accepted from all ages.
  • Images which are submitted will need to be of highest possible quality, e.g. 300 dpi resolution.
  • If your entry is an MV4, MP4 or other large multimedia file, please include a link for a file sharing site such as WeTransfer or Youtube. 
  • Entries will be judged by a panel of individuals based within Guernsey.
  • A minimum of one piece from each Island with entries submitted will be reproduced and included in the “Island Digital Arts Open” exhibition.
  • Highly commended entries will be showcased digitally across the Island in between coverage of sports events.
