2013 PixelJam compos announced!
2013 PixelJam compos include:
PIXELJAM: an INTERNATIONAL demoscene PARTY && glitchscene EVENT!
PixelJam is a new take on the traditional North American demoparty. Our goal is to provide a place where coders, creators, musicians, artists can express themselves and showcase their talents.
PixelJam is a distinct entity within the Notacon arts and technology conference, created to support, expand and transform the demoscene. As PixelJam is an integral part of Notacon, participants of one event are also participants in the other.
Combined Notacon and PixelJam attendance generally hovers around 400 people with an event space of over 15,000 square feet. A large and distinct PixelJam lounge space is available all weekend. This space includes a high quality 1080p projector and high end audio system, as well as plenty of space and power for creators to set up camp and work. Those who are unable to attend the event are encouraged to send in remote entries, where allowed. Remember, though, only winners at the event can receive prizes!
Since this is an event for the scene, your entries and support will make it a success. Have a suggestion? Let us know. Everyone involved with PixelJam looks forward to seeing you!

We are excited that Mindcandy has agreed to provide the brand new Mindacandy 3 blu-ray for the top 3 winners in the Combined Demo category at PixelJam!
Their work is a labor of love and a great way to introduce the demoscene to people not familiar with it. It’s also a great resource if you don’t have time to sit on pouet all day. If you want the best of the best, check out Mindcandy!
This year’s compos and rules are now up. As things change we will keep each category’s rules updated.
