Appy Hour

Submission Deadline

Friday, 25 July 2014
22:00 UTC/GMT

The Appy Hour submission deadline has been extended to 25 July.

Have you been slaving over a keyboard creating your app masterpiece? Are you a one-person team of superheroes storyboarding, coding, sampling music, wrangling imagery? Sounds like you could use a drink … and a place to show your hard work!  

Do just that at SIGGRAPH 2014’s Appy Hour! Appy Hour is a cocktail reception where independent app developers can show their apps to the SIGGRAPH 2014 attendees. Get feedback, cultivate new ideas, and make contacts to help move your efforts along. Whether your app uses augmented reality, computational photography, image manipulation, location-based gaming, or anything you can make your mobile device do, come show it to our audience.

We’ll provide you:

  • A spot to set up shop with your devices 
  • A sign with your name, logo, and app screen-shot
  • That drink we mentioned

Submit your app to Appy Hour today!

Submissions are due by 22:00 UTC/GMT, 25 July 2014.
