Prompted Peculiar

International AI Prize / Proudly supported by BAaD Gallery & Events

The inaugural BIFB Prompted Peculiar — International AI Prize brings us squarely into the world of images generated by prompting Artificial Intelligence to create art. This is a global competition which offers a $2000 prize to the overall winner and $1000 to the People’s Choice award.

As new technology impacts visual culture, this prize is an invitation to debate where this new art of ‘promptography’ belongs. The Jury shortlist of AI images will be exhibited during the festival and visitors are invited to cast their vote for the People’s Choice award. The term ‘promptography’ was popularised this year when photographer Boris Eldagsen turned down first prize in the creative open category of the Sony World Photography Awards, because his image ‘The Electrician’ was generated by AI, and in his words was ‘not photography’. The BIFB Prompted Peculiar — International AI Prize exhibition will be shown throughout the festival. Prize winners will be announced Sunday 8 October.
