Submission Rules and Requirements

Complete the online SIGGRAPH 2007 Art Gallery Submission Form. There you will find instructions on how to complete the online form. At the end of the online process, your entry will be assigned a submission ID number. Take note of this number for the rest of the submission requirements. A separate submission form must be completed for each submitted work. You can change your submission form (using the same login and submission ID) as many times as you like before the official submission deadline: 26 January 2007.


All works that will be displayed on a computer monitor must be submitted online only and must include:
  • Title, performance group, dimensions, duration, and date of the first performance.

  • One digital image of the highest quality possible, pixel resolution of at least 1500 x 1200, at least 300 dpi at 4 inches tall x 5 inches wide (or the highest possible screen-grab), TIFF files, no compression, MAC or PC platforms. Images must be submitted in digital format.

  • If necessary, please include additional images of the performance.

  • One or more videos in a cross-platform viewable format (Quicktime, MPEG, 100 megabytes or less).

  • A detailed list of technical equipment you require and the time required to prepare your work. Indicate any specific audio/visual equipment you need (2K or 4K projector, how many channels of audio diffusion, etc.). Tell us what equipment you will be supplying and how your equipment will interface with the equipment that the Art Gallery will provide. Be as specific and thorough as possible. It is important that you estimate your equipment and setup time as realistically as possible. Very basic assistance will be provided, but you are responsible for your own setup and tear-down in a timely manner.

  • Publishable artist's statement of no more than 300 words. Include a description of the concept and intent of your work.
