SIGGRAPH’s Computer Animation Festival celebrates its 41st year as the world’s leading festival of the most innovative and accomplished computer graphics. The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is partnering with the Torpedo Factory Art Center to host the 2014 SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival in Alexandria, Virginia.
The 41st annual Computer Animation Festival at SIGGRAPH 2014 will showcase more than 100 of the best examples of computer animation from the past year. Of the 450-plus festival submissions, just over a hundred were accepted -- and only nine were selected to receive top honors in their respective categories. Considering the exceptional creativity and technical skill evident in the pool of entries, the decision process must have been a difficult one for the SIGGRAPH jury.
The Japan Media Arts Festival is a comprehensive festival of Media Arts (Media Geijutsu) that honors outstanding works from a diverse range of media – from animation and comics to media art and games. The festival gives awards in each of its four divisions; Art, Entertainment, Animation, and Manga. It also provides a platform for appreciation of the award-winning and other notable works.
