Awards Committee

ACM SIGGRAPH presents nine awards to recognize the exceptional achievements in computer graphics and interactive techniques. Each of these awards is represented by a committee responsible for the selection of recipients according to award criteria and nominations submitted by ACM SIGGRAPH members.

To access nomination information for each award, please visit each awards page.

Within each awards committee, the awards chair supervises and facilitates the nomination of ACM SIGGRAPH members to higher ACM levels and other ACM awards, as well as facilitates the award announcements and ceremonies at conferences.
