Double Screen Compo

     
Compo 2013 - Deadline March 31st

Remember this little graphic competition with double-sized pictures that happened two years ago? Think it is a good time for a second attempt. Keeping some requests in mind the rules changed in some cases. More freedom for the graphic artist and coders, but also - as requested - more transparency in case of using references and copies. And - for the first time - a theme. The compo itself will be featured by c64pixels.com and Artcity. Compo organizers are Enthusi and I (Veto) - for any questions please contact us per PM (CSDb or check the c64pixels imprint).

Deadline is March 31st 2013. So if you are interested check out the rules and keep going :)

Compo 2011

Creating a graphic in size of two screen. All native formats allowed but should be displayed on a real C64. The idea behind this was to get a graphics competition with coders involved. Yazoo won the contest with his picture 'A Kind of Magic' and Digger received a special price for creating an online charmode graphics editor.

During the voting there was a very lively and also emotional discussion going on at the websites CSDb and Artcity. Reason was that 4 of 6 entries were based on scans. There is no doubt all contestants spent much time in post processing and actually the rules made no differences about the source. So all of them were valid entries. Btw the reason for accepting scans is that e.g. pictures based on photoshop compositions or rendered artworks shouldn't be excluded. Fortunately the votes showed sophisticated views (most voters wrote short comments about their decisions).

Anyway - The reactions brought the conclusion to get strict rules about this point, so further compos organized by c64pixels.com will only accept pictures with a copy-check-animation.
