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 with creating a character-driven animated sequence of at least 15 seconds in length, based on a theme provided by the judges. The list of judges includes representatives from Sony, ILM, Pixar, and DreamWorks. Prizes will be awarded from top hardware and software companies, and studios are contributing "opportunity" prizes in the form of lunches and meetings with high-level animators and directors. 

Those interested in participating should submit a demo reel to the SIGGRAPH 2007 Website ( Submissions must be made by three-person teams and are limited to one submission per team. Individuals are not permitted to submit with multiple teams. There is a $30 fee for uploading a demo reel.
