SIGGRAPH wants your demos!

SIGGRAPH has a new program (since 2009) where real-time graphics are shown before the SIGGRAPH Electronic Theater, on the big screen in the biggest room in the convention center. The intent is to become the showcase for the best real-time graphics, just as the Electronic Theater is the showcase for the best prerendered graphics.

If you're interested in submitting your demo, visit http://www.siggraph.org/s2010/for_submitters/live_real-time_demos. The deadline is April 28th, so there's just about a week left.

Two Articles About The Demoscene

We'd like to link you to a couple of great articles about the demoscene that have recently been published on the web

Firstly we have "Past, present and future of the demoscene". This well-researched article delves into the history of the demoscene and asks where it might be heading next. It was originally presented in the UK print magazine PC Plus before being re-printed on TechRadar.com

Secondly we have "Putting the demoscene in a context", an in-depth article written by Viznut of the demoscene group PwP, who are perhaps most well known for their Vic 20 demo Robotic Liberation

Is this thing on?

So here we are, gathered together after many weeks of hard work to witness the launch of the new Demoscene Outreach site. Created by ZINE and BitFellas, we are here to tell you what you need to know about the demoscene.

Whether you've heard about us at an outreach event, seen a link from your favourite website or just decided that it's about time that you caught up with one of the most exciting forms of digital art - this is the site for you. We are dedicated to helping you find out about the demoscene and showing you what to look out for. Think of us as your guide through the sometimes bewildering world of demos.

Of course, we wouldn't be here without the dedication, support and vision of the outreach team: ALiEN, Axel, evilpaul, H2o, Jova and everyone else at BitFellas and ZINE. Thank you all and we hope that we can make you proud and spread your message to the world.

So that's us and that's what we are about. Now let's get down to business..
