 General Competition Rules

  • Demoparty DiHalt 2024 will take place on January 5-6-7 in Nizhny Novgorod.
  • The entries submitted to competitions must not have been previously published (including social networks and/or other competitions).
  • If other people's materials are used as part of your entries, then you must have rights to use them.
  • Remote participation in contests without personal presence at the demoparty is allowed. The authors of prize-winning works will be sent diplomas by mail.
  • All entries will be subject to a preselection, during which some entries may be screened out (poor quality, violations of law and/or ethics, insults, politics, etc.). Entries that do not pass the preselection will not be shown and will not be published in the results of the demoparty and demopacks.
  • All entries submitted to the competitions, after the end of the demoparty, will be distributed by the organizers of the festival without additional approval from the authors, including on WWW/DVD.
  • It is desirable to have the author's video recording of the entries to control the correctness of its display on our equipment: for example, a link to YouTube / Vimeo. The video must not be made public until the end of the competition (you can use the "unlisted" option [access by link], while the link to such a video should not be publicly distributed).
  • With a small number of entries, there is the possibility of combining some competitions.
  • With a large number of entries, there is the possibility of separating entries into separate competitions.
  • Acceptance and display of entries sent after the deadline is not guaranteed.
  • The organizers reserve the right to resolve disputes on the entries unilaterally without explanation.

 Definition of winners

 Registration and reception of works

  • Reception and registration of entries will be completed 1 day before the start of the festival - on the evening of January 4th. Perhaps the acceptance of entries will go after, and perhaps directly at the demoparty, but this is NOT GUARANTEED.
  • Registration and uploading of entries is carried out on the website
  • Video files, as well as large files, must be provided to the organizers on special sites with access via a link (Google disk, etc.).
