Competitions  

Graphics Compo

You can use any tool you want to create a static image. We accept photos, photoshop entries, pixelart, 3d renders, etc. All pictures will be shown with the latest version of IrfanView. Please hand in pictures with a flawless compression like PNG to ensure highest quality. If you can submit steps of the creation process, they will be shown.

Music Compo

You can use any tool you want to create a streaming music file. We accept mp3/ogg, tracked music formats without VST plugins (let us know what free Windows player you'd like us to use to play it), and even executable music (rejoice 4klang and oidos fanboys out there). Max length 7 minutes.

Short Film Compo

You can use any tool you want to create a short film. We accept 3d animations, step motion, machinima, home videos, etc. We accept whatever format VLC can play out of the box, try to keep it small though. Max length 7 minutes.

One Scene Demo Compo

Executable realtime audiovisual scene of 60 seconds. If you are completely new to demo coding, or don’t have the time to make a full-fledged demo, then this compo is for you! Make it play out of a vanilla Windows 10 machine with latest graphics drivers. For other platforms please let us know what free emulator to use or bring your own hardware to play it.

Combined Intro/Demo Compo

Executable realtime audiovisual demo of maximum 7 minutes length. If you're size coding, we'll display the executable size on screen for people to judge based on that. Make it play out of a vanilla Windows 10 machine with latest graphics drivers. For other platforms please let us know what free emulator to use or bring your own hardware to play it.

Remote Submissions

Remote submissions are allowed but do not receive any prize money, please email your entry 1 week before the party.

Kids Corner   Some of our older demosceners face a hard decision between bringing their children along or not being able to attending the event at all. To facilitate your presence, Inércia will try to be as kid friendly as possible, we're planning to have a console games corner, a board games corner and a private patio for your kids to play safely without wandering into the street while you catch up with old memories and friends. We hope this will convince you to still make your presence (even if just only for a short visit) without losing points with your family.

We're open to other ideas, please email us your sugestions or, even better, organize some.
