A call for participation has been announced for the 5th Annual Faculty Submitted Student Work Exhibit at SIGGRAPH, the world's largest conference on computer graphics. Sponsored by the ACM SIGGRAPH Education Committee, the exhibit will be comprised of images and video to be displayed at the Education Committee Booth SIGGRAPH 2016 in Anaheim, CA and also on the Education Committee website.

The double-curated exhibit is open to all faculty working at Secondary/High School through University levels. The committee is interested in images of work by exceptional students, accompanied by the project assignment. Submissions are allowed from any content area: art, animation, graphic design, game design, architecture, visualization, real-time rendering, etc. The deadline for submissions is June 13, 2016.


The exhibit gives schools the opportunity to showcase their students' best work to the rest of the industry. After the conference, the entire presentation will be posted on the Education Committee website along with the corresponding project assignments to share with fellow faculty.
