The organizers and sponsors of the Ars Electronica intend to make the Women in Media Arts Database accessible to as large an audience as possible. To achieve this end, they intend to conduct a public relations campaign in print media outlets, radio and TV stations, and on the internet, as well as in various publications and by public presentations of the works.

The database will be documented and/or published, as a whole or in part, in the following media:

  • Ars Electronica Website (www.aec.at)
  • Ars Electronica Archive (archive.aec.at)
  • Ars Electronica Festival Catalog
  • Communication measures to promote the Women in Media Arts Database
  • A documentary TV program about the festival will be produced and broadcasted by ORF.

The material will be used for documentation purposes in the catalog, the Ars Electronica Archive and on the Ars Electronica website. Accordingly, participants are respectfully requested to prepare their images and texts meticulously and to submit them in the best possible quality.

The organizers reserve the right to determine the actual content, extent, timing and layout/design of the above-mentioned publications and documentaries.

Exhibitions and Presentations at the Ars Electronica Festival

The producers reserve the right to use the database in exhibitions and presentations. The participants consent to the use of the documentation material they provided in the database in such exhibitions and presentations.
