Entries are judged by a panel of computer graphics and real-time technology experts from across the industry. They are looking for the best interactive work driven by real-time technology that results in compelling and innovative content for a live audience. Creativity, innovation, content, and performance will be considered. The jury will meet in early May 2020 to review each submission on the following major criteria:
- Innovation (pushes the boundaries of real-time rendering or immersive techniques)
- Interactivity (how much control and quality of interactivity allowed to the user)
- Creativity and originality
- Interest and entertainment value for SIGGRAPH 2020 attendees
- Production values (appropriate to context)
The jury will select the top-rated pieces for presentation at SIGGRAPH 2020, and all submitters will be notified of their submission status: accepted, conditionally accepted*, or rejected. In all cases, the jury will provide detailed feedback to submitters.
*In very rare cases, submissions may be conditionally accepted. If your work is conditionally accepted, you must demonstrate your submission to a jury member via video demo so that its interactivity and/or real-time graphics aspects can be verified. Jurors who have a conflict of interest with your submission will not be permitted to review your submission.
SIGGRAPH reviewers cannot sign non-disclosure agreements for submissions. For information on Patents and Confidentiality see the Submissions FAQ.
