We had an exceptionally strong body of submissions, and thus the committee is additionally pleased to announce three honorable mentions: Julia Scher, for “Predictive Engineering3”, Rose Butler, for “Come and Go”, and Stefy McKnight for “Hunting for Prey”.

The Surveillance Studies Network Arts Fund is a bi-annual award that recognizes and publicly supports artwork centred on critical readings of surveillance. The Award includes a £2,000 prize, a showcase opportunity at the SSN Conference June 7-9, 2018 in Aarhus, Denmark, and invited participation in a future Surveillance & Society forum discussing the work.

Please look for further coverage of these artists and their work in Blink, the blog of Surveillance & Society, at the conference in Aarhus this June, and in a future special section of Surveillance & Society.

If you are joining us at the conference, please note that the submission deadline is 31 January, 2018.
