***LAST CALL FOR BEST VISUAL ILLUSION OF THE YEAR CONTEST: LESS THAN 2 WEEKS
LEFT!***

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

***ALL ILLUSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY MARCH 1st, 2005***

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Contestants are invited to submit a novel illusion (unpublished, or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, movie or html formats. An
international panel of impartial judges 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 Cientificos Coruñeses), and their
winning illusions will be made part of the museum’s exhibition!

Submissions will be held in strict confidence by the panel of judges and the
authors/creators will retain copyright. By submitting an entry
authors/creators are committing to allow the Science Museums of A Coruña to
display the illusion to the public in exhibition format and to describe it
as an exhibit in museum pamphlets and handouts. The museum staff will ask
authors/creators for permission in the event that they wish to publish
submitted illusions in books or other formats.

Submissions can be made to Dr. Susana Martinez-Conde (Executive Chair of
ECVP 2005) via email (smart at neuralcorrelate.com) 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!
