    Welcome to NYC ACM SIGGRAPH's MetroCAF 2009

    MetroCAF is the annual NYC Metropolitan Area College Computer Animation Festival organized by the New York City chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH. Started in 2003, MetroCAF has grown into the most important local festival of its kind. It provides an exciting opportunity for all students in the NYC metropolitan area to show their work to not only their fellow students, but also to professionals in the field of computer graphics. Plans are under way for the festival to tour the network of ACM SIGGRAPH Professional and Student Chapters so this could mean international exposure for your computer-generated pieces.

    Please send us your work

    This seventh edition of the festival is open to all students who attend college in the NYC metropolitan area, and who have produced computer animation, visualization or visual effects within the course of your studies (in other words, you haven't been paid for it). Schools are considered to be within the NYC metropolitan area if they are located within a 75-mile radius of Times Square in Manhattan.

    Check out the rules and regulations and fill out the entry form. Deadline: Postmarked June 1st 2009
