    Information on the general theory and philosophy of the design process.
    This category comprises artistic works that need a digital media or support to express its essence. Two ways artistic digital works are generally identified are through their multi-media and interactive content.

    Before submitting a site in Arts/Digital please consider these categories:
    Since the 1960s, computers have been used to create, enhance, or alter art in various ways. With the increasing availability of affordable multimedia equipment computers have become one of the most accessible mediums for art.
    The Internet has developed as the most challenging aspect for this community, and art is thriving on the Net, both in conceptual form and in web-based graphics and animations.
    We know `Digital Arts' is a sketchy term and possibly not the best. But today this seems to be understood by the artists working with digital support. Here we have defined Digital Arts as [Art + Computer + Interactivity + Multimedia].
