  • Please ensure that your entry will run without administrative privileges. If do you require capabilities beyond those afforded to a normal desktop user please contact the compo team and we will evaluate your request.
  • There must be at least two entries per compo; related compos may be merged (e.g. demo and intro) if not enough entries are received
  • No individual or group may submit more than one entry in any compo.
  • All entries will be due to the organizers on Saturday June 13th at 5 PM. We will soon make a wuhu party server available to upload your prod (preferred option). If you want to submit ASAP or for some reason you cannot use this option, email us at bostondemoscene@gmail.com to let us know. http://www.timeanddate.com/library/abbreviations/timezones/na/edt.html
  • Only entrants who are present at the party or have a representative present at the party can win prizes.
  • The democrew reserve the right to disqualify entries with racist, pornographic, or ultraviolent content, although we will discuss this matter in detail with the individuals concerned before passing a verdict.
  • We do not allow previously released material to be entered into any of our competitions.
  • All entries will be livestreamed on SceneSat and made freely available in some form for download on scene.org
  • Only submit work that is your own. For a cooperative prod, cooperators must have assigned all their rights to you. Everyone involved in a production must agree to enter the production.
  • Do not use content in your entries unless you have a legal license to use that content. This means no ripped music, no movie snippets, no close-ups of trademarked logos, etc. Violations will result in immediate disqualification.
  • Pure video and animation playback is only accepted in the Wild category. If entered into another category it will be disqualified.
  • All executable productions must terminate gracefully when the Escape key or system equivalent is pressed.
  • Unless otherwise noted all entries have a maximum runtime of 8 minutes including loading / precalc.
