SIGGRAPH hosting character design contest

If you are a character designer and thinking about attending the SIGGRAPH conference on July 24-28 in Anaheim, this is your lucky week. The Spirit of SIGGRAPH 
winner will receive complimentary full conference registration for SIGGRAPH 2016. Travel and incidental expenses are not included. The winning design will also be featured in promotion of the conference through social media, and the designer will be credited.

Designs must be submitted by midnight on April 15. The winner will be announced on May 2. The contest is seeking character designs that “embody the spirit of SIGGRAPH and should be original creations.” Submissions will be judged on any of the following criteria:
– Creativity
– Design
– Relevance to SIGGRAPH
– Suitability to 2D graphic design, 3D animatable design
and 3D printable solid design
– Ability to be turned into a wearable costume
– Suitability for use in a variety of on-site promotions

The winner will be chosen by this year’s SIGGRAPH event chair, Mona Kasra, next year’s event chair, Jerome Solomon, and a board of judges comprised of 2016 program chairs and experts across the animation and design industries.
