Qwartz

Qwartz Electronic Music Awards is a promotional and supportive program dedicated to new and electronic music. It recognizes and awards grants to independent labels and artists. It brings together the different waves of new and electronic music, from the most demanding to the most festive, from electro-acoustic to techno. Qwartz creates and enhances the links between the 20th century’s pioneers and the contemporary artists using new technologies in their work. The program rewards the different aspects of digital culture: music, graphic-design, audiovisuals and graphics, technological innovation, and new media arts.

Two international contests are held each year in order to promote, support and enhance the work of independent artists and labels. The first is dedicated to music and the second one to new media arts.

An annual event takes place in Paris. Besides the Awards Ceremony, Qwartz organizes an International New and Electronic Music Market, concerts, parties and conferences.
