<19 Freestyle Computing Competition
Since 2003, C3 Center for Culture & Communication Foundation organizes an annual creative, “freestyle” computer competition, the <19 Freestyle Computing Competition for the young generation (under 19), resulting in a weekend of workshops, an award ceremony as well as an exhibition. Contestants can send in their works usually by the end of October and the jury’s selection is revealed at the final event in December. The competition aims at encouraging the creative use of new technologies as well as providing participants with a platform to present their achievements and means to develop their projects further.
