SIGGRAPH’s SPACETime 2016 International Student Competition provides an excellent opportunity for students currently attending school in either traditional academic setting or home school at either the College/University levels or High School/Secondary levels and working in computer based media to exhibit their creative work nationally and internationally.
Entries will be judged on the basis of solution of the theme, artistic merit, design, originality, technical excellence, and content. We are interested in ways to push the limits of the technology available or involve combinations of technologies.
The theme for SPACETime 2016 is “Render the Possibilities” in keeping with the theme of 2016 conference. We are looking for posters that depict this idea.
Selected works will be exhibited at the SIGGRAPH Education Committee Booth at the 2016 Conference and included on the ACM SIGGRAPH Education Committee web site, and in promotional materials.
Three winners will receive a Conference Access registration to the SIGGRAPH 2016 Conference in Anaheim, California, 24-28 July 2016, which does not include travel or lodging. The authors of accepted works will receive a letter, which may serve as a basis for applying for their schools’ grants to attend the conference.
You may include text in the poster design as long as it suits the theme.
A minimal use of text is suggested.
One entry per student.
