+playengines+ MelbourneDAC exhibition

Melbourne Digital Arts and Culture Conference 2003 is inviting 
artists working in the areas of computer games, interactive film and 
streaming media to submit projects for +playengines+ a juried 
exhibition exploring innovative creative work in the fields of 
computer games, interactive hypermedia, interactive fiction and 
nonfiction, and streaming media arts.

Artistic works selected for inclusion in the conference exhibition

producers, academics, local industry partners and the broader public.
