We have a date for you if you are submitting a demo for the Demo Derbies at GDC this year (Sound Design, Music or both). On February 4th, by noon (Pacific time) we will have a link posted IN THE FORUMS for you to post your files to if you plan on participating this year.
REMEMBER, you MUST be in attendence at GDC this March, in San Francisco, otherwise there won’t be much point to reviewing your work without you being there.
AUDIO FILES for Music Derby: 1 file, 320 kpbs MP3, 60 seconds or less
VIDEO FILES for Sound Design Derby: 1 file, Quick Time (.mov file) 1280×720 or less, stereo 44.1 audio – 120 seconds or less.
If you’d like to use video in the music derby, that’s fine, just use the video format list (but keep it under 60 seconds as that’s a requirement for the music derby.) If you’d like to do audio only for the sound design derby, that’s fine, just use the audio format listed above.
file name formatted as
"MUSIC(if Music derby)_FIRSTNAME_LASTNAME.mp3" or
"SOUND(if Sound Deisgn derby)_FIRSTNAME_LASTNAME.mov"
Please see this article for more information on the derby. There is NO judging of submissions, and all submissions are considered part of the panel once submitted unless we get too many. It is handled on a first come, first served basis.
