Best of Show
This award is applicable to all submissions but also opens up the door for any wild card creatives out there doing work that is too edgy to fit in any one category! You know who you are! :)
For example, you may be doing cool things with projectors, lasers, or game consoles, touch-displays, perhaps you re-engineered a smart phone and made it do something no one ever thought it could do, or created a beautiful abstract animation purely through code. Whatever it is you’re concocting, the jury wants to see it and share it at the festival to celebrate your creativity.
Please use your judgment and submit your work in a format that it high enough resolution to be clearly seen and appreciated. For video consider using the .wmv or .mp4 formats, for still images use jpegs, etc. If your work is an installation, please submit multiple photos or videos so the work can be fully understood and appreciated.
