The Studio is hosting several competitions with wonderful prizes, including printers, tablets, and a SIGGRAPH 2016 conference registration:
Kinetic Sculptures: Creating Programmable Art Contest
Based on the successful Arduino Drawing Machines Competition at SIGGRAPH 2014, the Studio hosts the Kinetic Sculptures Contest, focusing on creating “programmable art”. After two kick-off courses (Sunday, 9 August, 3:45 - 5:15 pm and Monday, 10 August, 9 - 10:30 am), attendees can work on their submissions before the contest event on Wednesday afternoon, 12 August.
T-Shirt Design Competition
Starting with an optional introductory course (Sunday, 9 August, 2 - 3:30 pm), attendees learn the basics of designing graphics for printing on a t-shirt. From there, they move to the ⌘/CTRL+P Area to print out t-shirt designs for free on the Epson SureColor® F2000. To enter the Studio’s t-shirt competition, all artwork must be created in the Studio between Sunday and Thursday. T-shirts must be printed on the F2000 in advance of judging. Do not use copyrighted imagery that does not belong to you. You keep the t-shirt you enter in the competition. On Thursday, 13 August at 11 am, designers who are present with their shirts for the live judging session are eligible to win.
Studio Design Design-Off
In the ⌘/CTRL+P Area, attendees compete in a 10-minute design-off. During the first three days of SIGGRAPH 2015, the contest narrows down to several finalists, who compete against other finalists on Wednesday for awesome prizes.
