Art Gallery Submissions Process

The SIGGRAPH 2021 Art Gallery showcases innovative artwork that explores contemporary computer graphics and interactive techniques, making use of advances in rendering, simulation, generation, and immersion for creative and critical investigations. Building on the success of last year’s virtual arts programming, the Art Gallery explores ways to facilitate engagement with creative work that is accessible in online or hybrid formats. The Art Gallery is a juried exhibition, and we welcome submissions from both emerging and established artists throughout the world.

How to Submit

SIGGRAPH 2021 will move forward at this time as a virtual-only event. We look forward to celebrating 48 years of advancements in computer graphics and interactive techniques in our virtual venue. We are excited you are submitting your work for consideration. As we finalize our conference plans, visit the About the Conference page for the latest updates.

Log into the submission portal, select the “Make a New Submission” tab, and select the Art Gallery form. To see the information you need to submit, view the Sample Submission Form.
