Compos

There will be two compos at the party: realtime and wild. Realtime compo entries must be traditional executable programs that produce images and sound in real time. The platform can be old or new, but if your entry doesn't run on a modern PC with Windows or Linux operating system, please contact the organizers for arrangements to run it.

Wild entries can be anything that can be presented with a screen and/or loudspeakers. And entry can be a picture, prerendered animation, a piece or music or a video of a live performance. Bring something from outside the box and surprise us!

The winner of each compo will receive a prize. More details will be available later.

The specs of the compo machine will also be available later.

Entries will be presented with a 1080p projector. If you want to bring your own hardware to present your entry, please contact the organizers so we can ascertain its compatibility with the A/V equipment at the party place.

Entries must be delivered before the deadline on the party day (exact time to be announced later). Acceptable methods of submission are USB drives and URLs. You may test your entry on the compo machine before the compo if you wish.

Remote entries are also welcome. In this case we recommend you send at least a preliminary version well in advance to avoid unexpected compatibility problems. Contact information is at the end of the page.

Entries will be published on this site after the party unless the author expressly forbids it.

Directions

Skrolli magazine is sponsoring a party bus from Helsinki to Tampere and back. Bus tickets cost 10 euros. Passengers can also be picked up along the way.

The address and directions to the party place will be sent to participants separately.
