SSN Arts prize 2022 winner

Award announcement

The selection committee is delighted to announce the winner of the SSN Arts Prize 2022, Elham Fatapour’s homemade satellite dishes (2019-2020).

Additionally, the committee awarded two honourable mention awards to Wendy Wong for Linguistic racism and the sonic surveillance of speech in schools (2021) and Jessica-Maria Nassif for Mix, Match, and Start from Scratch (2019-2021).

We received many impressive applications to the competition this year, and the committee is thankful to all those who took the time to apply. The Surveillance Studies Network Arts Prize is a bi-annual award that recognizes and publicly supports artwork centred on critical readings of surveillance. The award includes a monetary prize, invited participation in a future Surveillance & Society forum discussing the work, and a showcase opportunity at the Surveillance Studies Network’s conference on 01-03 June 2022 at Erasmus University Rotterdam in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Congratulations to the SSN Arts Prize 2022 winner and two honourable mentions!
