The European Conference of Visual Perception is happy to announce the First
Best Illusion of the Year Award!!!

 

ILLUSION SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW OPEN!!

 

ECVP 2005, to be held in A Coruña, Spain, in August 22nd - 26th, 2005 will
host the world’s first Best Illusion of the Year Award!! 

Contestants are invited to submit a novel illusion (unpublished, or
published no earlier than 2004) in standard image or movie formats. An
international panel of impartial judges (experts from the visual science
community, TBA) will rate the submissions and narrow them to the top ten.

Then, at ECVP in A Coruña, the top ten illusionists will present their
contributions and the attendees of the event (that means you!) will vote to
pick the TOP THREE WINNERS! First, Second, and Third prize winners will each
receive a specially designed  trophy from the Science Museums of A Coruña
(Museos Científicos Coruñeses), and their winning illusions will be made
part of the museum’s exhibition!

 

Submissions can be made to Dr. Susana Martinez-Conde (Executive Chair of
ECVP 2005) via email (smart at neuralcorrelate.com) starting immediately and
until March 1, 2005. Illusion submissions should come with a (no more than)
one-page description of the illusion and its theoretical underpinnings (if
known). Illusions will be rated according to: 

 

• Significance to our understanding of the visual system • Simplicity of the
description • Sheer beauty • Counterintuitive quality • Spectacularity 

 

Submit your ideas now and take home this prestigious award!
