Notacon is proud to announce the launch of North America’s newest demoparty, PixelJam.

Following the tradition started with Blockparty at Notacon, we decided that with the departure of Blockparty, it was important to pursue a fresh approach to having a demoparty in conjunction with Notacon event. The demoscene has long been on the cutting edge of the intersection of creativity and technology. As such, we wanted to support the scene by providing a new opportunities to demo coders and those at Notacon who are and don’t know it!

PixelJam will feature a total of 9 compos ranging from music to animation to traditional demos. Notacon itself has pledged over $1,500 in total prize money, with more prizes to be announced as we secure sponsorship deals. We are also dedicating 2,500 square feet of conference space to a coding lounge and projection space. This space will be expanded by an additional 3,000 square feet for demo screenings on Saturday night the 16th.

Finally, we want to remind everyone that our Call for Proposals is open through January 31st, 2011. Also, tickets are still on sale in our early-bird price brackets. Please reserve your tickets now before the price jumps!

More news coming soon, if you have any questions about PixelJam or anything else, feel free to contact us!
