  Theme
This year's edition of the UNESCO Digital Arts Award 2007 is at the heart of the global dialogue on the role of art as a vital force for positive change to how we shape our environment, whether determined by physical properties (spatial, geographical, climatic, etc) or by social relevancies, and how we respond to our surroundings, immediate and global.

Young artists are invited to reflect on how urban spaces and city environments could be transformed into creative outlets cultivating artistic innovation and new form of expression. Potential applicants to the award are asked to conceive and design their creative projects that are integral to the theme of sustainable urban development.

The award is especially in conjunction with the UNESCO Young Digital Creators (YDC)-

 Jury
