      EVOLUTIONARY ART COMPETITION
      2011 GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION CONFERENCE (GECCO-2011)
      Sponsored by ACM SIGEVO
      http://www.sigevo.org/GECCO-2011

      This competition invites conference participants to demonstrate that
      genetic and evolutionary computation can be applied to create impressive
      and provocative works of art. The competition will identify the best
      work, be it an image, a sculpture, a music score, a video, an
      interactive online experience, or a system that exhibits some form of
      independent creativity.

      == Entry Submission ==

      Entrants must submit: (1) a brief artistic statement illustrating the
      concept, (2) a short paper describing the technical details, and (3) a
      set of multimedia files to illustrate the result of the evolutionary
      process. Artists can either submit five still images, or a video of up
      to 5 minutes, or a sound file of up to 5 minutes. All submissions
      should be sent to christian.gagne@... by June 17, 2011.

      == Evaluation ==

      The submissions will be evaluated by a jury of researchers from the
      evolutionary computation and the technological arts communities, who
      will evaluate the submissions on the following four criteria:
      originality, artistic quality, technical quality, and relevance to
      evolutionary art and the goals of the competition.

      == Presentation ==

      Finalists selected by the jury will be invited to present their
      submission at the competition session, held during the GECCO conference.
      The winner of the competition will be announced at the SIGEVO meeting
      ceremony, on July 16, 2011.
