The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences and the Entertainment Software Association have announced they are now accepting submissions for the annual Into the Pixel (ITP) art exhibition.

ITP offers an opportunity for computer and video game artists to receive critical review of their creative work by peers. It is also designed to facilitate a conversation between the traditional and digital art worlds.

A total of 16 entries will be selected to become part of the ITP Collection and will be printed by a master printer and framed.
In June the art will be judged by a jury of museum curators and digital experts.

"Video games are an influential aspect of pop-culture and entertainment, and behind every game character and kinetic environment are artists whose images tell the stories," says Joseph Olin, president of The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.

"We are excited to be able to bring these gifted artists into the public eye and look forward to viewing the fantastic work that will [become part of] the Into The Pixel collection," he added.

Launched in 2004, ITP is the only juried digital art exhibition that brings together experts from the fine art world and the interactive entertainment industry.

ITP work has been shown around the world, including the Design Center in Stuttgart, the European Festival of Art in Nottingham, the Bradford Animation Festival, the San Jose Technology Museum, the Toronto International Film Festival, and debuted at South by Southwest Festival earlier this month.
