Criteria | How to Submit Nominations
The scope of the areas of accomplishment for award recipients encompasses both theory and application including, but not limited to, works of art, development of algorithms, hardware design, and innovative application of computer graphics. Neither award, however, is intended solely to recognize service to SIGGRAPH. The SIGGRAPH Awards Committee reviews the nominations, evaluates the contributions of the nominees, and selects award recipients.
Recipients of these awards need not be members of ACM or SIGGRAPH. They will be invited to attend the SIGGRAPH conference as a guest presenter.
