The Gala took place on February 20, 1997 in Salzburg's Stadtkino (City Theater), with a TV crew at hand.
The Techno-Z professional school and Salzburg's ORF-studio first announced the Prix MultiMediaArt in 1996 in order to distinguish exceptional Austrian multimedia productions. In the meantime, the Europrix developed.

Following the prize there ensued contact to MBA (Multimedia Business Austria), diverse artists and agencies, an invitation to Milia in Cannes and some other stuff.
