Winners of the Digital Innovation in Art Award Announced !

Yesterday evening, the 3rd of October, marked .ART’s third edition of the Digital Innovation in Art Award.

A global community of arts and finance professionals flew in to attend the ceremony. The evening took a twist as .ART’s executive director, Ekaterina Kozlova, was reading the results. For the first time in the award history, instead of only one, there were two winners. The twelve candidates shortlisted for the award are all leaders in their fields and the selection process was a challenge to begin with. Investors Allstars and the .ART judge panel admitted that the two nominees were both exceptional at driving innovation in alignment with the award criteria.
