The organization of the Awards is pleased by the great reception and the response we have had this first call:

• It attracted more than 200 works and pieces from 21 countries on 4 continents (only lacked Oceania).
• Many of the artists who have participated are professionals with extensive experience and high professional cache: among those submitted to the Digital Graphics section were 6 national awards of Engraving and Graphic among those presented at the Digital Animation section had various artists with first prizes in prestigious international competitions such as Ars Electronica or at Siggraph.
• The quality and level of the winning works to allow the University of Extremadura begins a Collection of Digital Art, no doubt, will become standard reference, on par with a great artistic heritage.
• The selection of works made by the jury (comprised of some of the most prestigious professionals in the field), to achieve one of the main objectives proposed by the leadership contest: the renewal of the imaginary in the iconography of the present graphic art and detachment with obsolete technological proposals awards flooded expressive use.
• The participation in its catalogue by well-known specialists in this artistic field, writting important critical texts, have provided to that publication (along with a sleek graphic design by Daniel Hervás) a quality and a much higher interest than usual in this type of publication. It is available on the Web a digital version of it online in PDF.
• The website of LUMEN_EX 2010 is being visited and consulted by thousands of users.
• It´s wall on Facebook social network already has 1212 friends and 245 fans (the statistical numbers consulted at 03/23/2010)

The organization is convinced that exposure of the winning works and selected (25 plays physical and 23 digital animations), which opens at the Palace of Camarena of Caceres, the 26th of this March, at 19,30 hours, you get to convey all these achievements in this first edition of 2010 with a 'staging' exhibition (entrusted to the Professor of the Department of Art History at the UEx, Rosa Perales), which will undoubtedly give clarity and usability that requires assembling hybrid (physical and virtual) as making up the set of all these works.

We invite you to visit the exhibit of Cáceres physically and virtually through its online version from the website of the contest on the Internet. We hope that through all these statistics, you can get an idea as close as possible to reality and which is consolidated in his first edition of 2010 Awards Digital Art / Digital Art Awards LUMEN_EX University of Extremadura, and whose success is due largely to the support received from the very beginning for you all, no doubt the determining factor for the organization of the contest has already confirmed its second edition, to be held next year 2011.
