"The New Media category was launched last year and this year's finalists represent an exceptionally high standard of artworks covering a range of mediums including digital photography, video, animation and projection," Cr McKay said.

"I am pleased to announce that six works from some of the Coast's finest New Media artists have been named amongst the national finalists in the 2015 Sunshine Coast Art Prize New Media category which includes a $10,000 cash prize.
 
"A Highly Commended award sponsored by the University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery, which includes a $1250 prize, and a $250 People's Choice Award, are also up for grabs in the New Media category.
