The news about ITAF2012 reached the ARD Text office and director Frauke Languth thought that this could be tried out in ARD Text too.
The success of ITAF in ARD added fuel to fire and now ARD invited ORF teletext and Swiss text to join in. The first Teletext Art Prize was given and ITAF2013 was also included in Ars Electronica Festival program in Linz Austria.
