DATE: Thursday, November 16, 2023
FROM: 7:00pm-9:00pm EST
The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH would like to invite everyone to our MACRO design challenge reveal where we will be showcasing the work of participants who have created images for our 1st Chapter Design Challenge for 2023 which was announced in August. Participants will show their work then discuss the story behind the image as well as the software used and any tips the artist would like to share. Participants will also receive a complimentary membership to our chapter for taking part in our challenge. Our goal is to encourage our members and followers to stretch their imaginations, as well as explore new techniques, to create compelling stories.
We will also be finalizing the vote for our 2024 board members at the beginning of the meeting. Members of the Washington DC chapter were notified of the candidates with nominations closing on October 21, 2023.
There is still time if you choose to participate in the design challenge. The guidelines for the MACRO design challenge can be found below. Please let us know if you are planning to show an image during the meeting.
The meeting will be hosted on the Zoom platform. A link to the meeting will be provided 5 minutes prior to the presentation to all those who have responded to the announcement on our MeetUp. The link will also be visible to those who RSVP. Those who do not RSVP to the MeetUp announcement will not receive the link to the meeting.
Please join us on Thursday, November 16, 2023, from 7pm to 9pm EST online to see the incredible designs from our design challenge participants as well as confirm our chapter Board members for 2024.
If you choose to participate, we do have a few rules:
* No obscene or vulgar artwork. While we respect the right for artists to express themselves, we have a diverse audience so please do not submit work with nudity or work which is overtly sexual in nature. Works with extreme, graphically violent acts would also fall into this category.
* No political or religious artwork. Again, while we respect the right for artists to express themselves, our chapter cannot become a platform for political or religious agendas.
* When assets are provided, give credit to the asset provider if you use their asset(s).
* If there are questions regarding topics or content, please feel free to contact us. We would like to encourage people to express themselves.
Please let us know if you will be participating.
We look forward to seeing your creations!

Media: Use the application(s) or medium which inspires you
Macro. What does Macro mean to you. Does it encompass the universe? Is it revealing the minutest detail of an object. Using your favorite medium, create an image or animation which tells a story about your concept of Macro.
People have preferences for 2D or 3D so, either is acceptable so long as it conveys your story.
