If you’ve got a couple years of experience working with TouchDesigner, I strongly urge you to enter The Interactive & Immersive Championship.

It’s a unique chance to get your name and brand recognized by 1000s of viewers. Additionally, the winners will be recognized across our email list and social channels, as well as in an internationally syndicated press release. That’s to say nothing of the thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes the top 3 competitors will win.

Regardless of whether you compete, you will NOT want to miss The Championship.

This is a rare opportunity to get an inside look into how the pros build, optimize, and craft generative and interactive media using TouchDesigner and Notch. There will even be Q&A sessions for viewers to ask competitors questions during and after the competition.

In order to win the tournament, competitors must prove themselves across three epic challenges .

Round One - 16 competitors

Challenge 1: The Sensor Challenge

In the first challenge, competitors will be required to pick their favourite interactive inputs and sensors (audio, mouse, keyboard, Microsoft Kinect, Lep Motion, Oculus VR controllers, LIDAR, etc) and create a compelling interactive scene within 60 minutes.

Challenge 2: The Integration Challenge

Competitors will have to pull out all the stops in their toolkit to combine TouchDesigner with any other real-time application to create an amazing piece of immersive media in 60 minutes. Competitors can utilize Notch, Unreal Engine, Processing, Ableton Live, and more.

Judge rank the competitors in each of the first two challenges and the top 8 average placements will move on to the final round.

Round Two - Final 8 competitors

Final Challenge: The Copy Cat Challenge

The finalists will be tasked with creating a brand new piece of real-time immersive media based on their favourite artist, whether it's van Gogh or Memo Akten. Competitors will need to use all their pro tricks and technique to achieve the most visually stunning and interesting generative piece that honours their favourite artist in 90 minutes!
