      Evolutionary Art, Design, and Creativity Competition

                       to be held as part of the

       2012 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2012)
                      July 7-11, Philadelphia, PA, USA

                       Organized by ACM SIGEVO
                    http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2012

       Submission Deadline for this competition: June 15, 2012



      The Evolutionary Art, Design, and Creativity Competition at the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference showcases the power of evolutionary computation through human-quality artistic works or creativity enhancing experiences generated by or with the assistance of evolution. Entries can be music, images, sculptures, videos, or interactive online experiences, but are not limited to these forms of expression; the goal is that the submissions exhibit some form of independent creativity through genetic and evolutionary computation.

      ==Entry Submission==

      Entrants must submit: (1) a brief artistic statement illustrating the concept, (2) a short paper describing the technical details and the evolutionary algorithm, and (3) a set of multimedia files, either 5 still images, a video of up to 5 minutes, or a sound file of up to 5 minutes, that demonstrates the output quality of the evolutionary process.  All submissions should be sent to ahoover@... by June 15, 2012.

      ==Evaluation==

      The submissions will be evaluated by a jury of researchers from the evolutionary computation and the technological arts communities. Each submission will be judged on the following criteria:
      artistic or design merit, innovation, creativity, technical quality, and relevance.

      ==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 11, 2012.

      ==Important Dates==

      * Submission deadline: June 15, 2012
      * Conference: July 07-11, 2012
