Celebrating Chapter Pride

Celebrating Chapter Pride

Local and regional chapters help the ACM SIGGRAPH community promote excellence in computer graphics and interactive techniques.These professional and student chapters throughout the world organize meetings, site visits, conferences, screenings, art shows, and special events year-round.

SIGGRAPH 2015 is honoring these communities during the month of May and asking Chapters to show their pride as part of the ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter Pride Sweepstakes. Chapters are encouraged to submit a short, creative video highlighting Chapter activities from the 2014 calendar year. At random, one video will be selected as the sweepstakes winner. The winning Chapter will receive a grant for $250 plus an assortment of SIGGRAPH 2015 swag to distribute to Chapter members!

HOW TO ENTER:

  1. Create a short video, not to exceed two minutes, chronicling the Chapter’s activity in the past year. Use video footage, still photography, animation, hyperlapse or whatever technique that best tells the Chapter’s story. Be creative!
  2. Upload the video entry to YouTube using the hashtag #MySIGGRAPH.
  3. Email emily_drake@siggraph.org and share the URL for your video. All video entries will be added to a playlist on the ACM SIGGRAPH YouTube Channel.

Entries will be accepted through 15 May 2015. The winning Chapter will be announced on 22 May 2015 as part of Chapter Appreciation Month for SIGGRAPH 2015!
