For those who recieve the AWN newsletter, i found this to be of great interest


The deadline for entry into SIGGRAPH 2007 FJORG! (pronounced FORGE), a new
international computer graphics animation competition sponsored by DreamWorks
Animation, is fast approaching. The competition will be held at SIGGRAPH 2007,
the 34th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and
Interactive Techniques held Aug. 5-9, 2007, at the San Diego Convention Center.

Sixteen, three-member teams will be selected to compete in FJORG! for an
intense, 32-hour competition held before a live audience. Each team will be
challenged to create a character-driven animated sequence (of at least 15
seconds in length) based on a specific theme provided by the judges.

Interested participants can now submit demo reels at up until May 15.
Official Rules available online at

I would love to see this televised or podcasted. a battle between 16 teams over 32 hours. cool!
