The ZKM Awards give precedence to current developments in the artistic sphere, forefronting innovations in both art and technology.
The ZKM has been presenting the Giga-Hertz Award since 2007. This Award places particular emphasis on promoting young musicians as well as established artists who, with their work in music, have made a decisive impact on the development of New Music.
The AppArtAward has been closing a gap since 2011 by giving special priority to applications distinguished by high artistic and technological standards. The thematic range of the awards is oriented invariably on technilogical development, and is correspondingly adapted each year.
The international Siemens Media Arts Prize was started in 1992 by the Center for Art and Media and the Siemens Cultural Program and awarded for the first time on May, 22 of that same year. Between 1993 and 1997, the prize was awarded regularly every two years.
